Caleb Mutfwang, governor of Plateau, on Monday, inaugurated an Abuja-Jos direct flight to further improve the quality of transportation in the state.

Speaking at the inaugural flight at the Yakubu Gowon Airport Heipang, near Jos, Mutfwang said the development was a partnership between the state and ValueJet Airline.

The state government had, on August 15, 2023, signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with ValueJet airline to allow the carrier to expand its services to Jos.

Mutfwang said the development was a fulfilment of his determination to open Plateau to investment opportunities and strengthen its transportation industry.

The governor was represented by Jatau Gyang, the state commissioner of transportation.


He said the launch of the services would strengthen trade and tourism in the state.

“This is a fulfilment of the promise made that we will enhance transportation in all dimensions both into and out of Plateau,” the governor said.

“I am glad that today we have revamped the Jos-Abuja route that had been left unattended due to developments in the aviation sector.”


Mutfwang urged indigenes of the state as well as visitors to take advantage of the flight operations.

He said the federal agencies in Plateau such as the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies should engage the private airline to make travel arrangements.

In his remarks, Nantio Rindap, general manager of the Jos airport, said all necessary modalities had been put in place for the safety of passengers on the route.

On her part, Yewande Cole, head of ground operations of ValueJet Airline, assured Plateau people that the airline would holistically add value to the state’s transport system.
