Overland Airways has begun a new triangular service between Lagos in Nigeria and the capitals of Benin and Togo.

The privately owned Nigerian carrier started the four-times-weekly Lagos-Cotonou-Lome flights on 12 August, it says, without revealing the aircraft type being used.

Chief operating officer Aanu Benson describes the new services as "an expression of Nigeria's aviation renaissance in West Africa."

FlightGlobal schedules data shows that Air Burkina and ASKY operate between Cotonou and Lagos. ASKY also operates from Lagos to Lome. There are no scheduled services between the Nigerian city and Cotonou.

Flight Fleets Analyzer indicates that Overland has a fleet of four ATR 42s, three ATR 72s, two Beech 1900s and one Embraer ERJ-145.
