Azman Air (AZM, Kano) has resumed scheduled domestic Nigerian flights with a single B737-300 following a near eight-month hiatus.

The airline announced on social media it would resume operations on April 4, but according to ADS-B data, the first return flight with company-owned 5N-YSM (msn 28557) between Kano and Lagos happened on April 5.

On February 29, Azman Air announced the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) had renewed the carrier's air operator's certificate (AOC). 5N-YSM arrived back in Kano on January 9 after undergoing C-check maintenance in Istanbul Airport.

Azman Air had suspended all operations, including domestic schedules and Hajj charters to Saudi Arabia, in August 2023. The staff reportedly had been on unpaid leave from August 1, 2023, except for a skeleton crew to maintain its stored fleet. Management blamed the suspension of operations on heavy maintenance that took longer than expected.

According to the ch-aviation PRO airlines module, Azman Air's fleet includes two B737-300s (one owned and one leased from AerCap); four B737-500s (two in-house and two leased from AerCap and AviLease, respectively), and one company-owned A340-600.
