In a statement on Monday, it would be providing ramp handling services, cargo handling services, warehousing services and other aviation-related services to the airline starting from January 1.

SAHCO is one of the two aviation handling companies listed on the Nigerian Exchange.
The Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of SAHCO, Basil Agboarumi, said, “SAHCO’s choice as the preferred ground handling company for full Ethiopian Airlines’ operations at the cargo ramp in Lagos is due to its pedigree and brilliant track record over the years.
