FG Unveils Nigeria Air As Nigeria’s New National Carrier
The Federal Government of Nigeria on Wednesday unveiled the new National Carrier. It is called “Nigeria Air”.
The Minister of State for Aviation, Sen. Hadi Sirika, did the unveiling to investors at the ongoing Farnborough International Air Show in UK.
The colour is green white green.
During the unveiling, the minister said, “this will be a National Carrier that is Private sector-led and driven. It is a business, not a social service. Government will not be involved in running it or deciding who runs it. The investors will have full responsibility for this.”
According to Sirika the new carrier will apply 81 routes, both local and international, after considering about a thousand destinations.
Ethiopian Airlines said it’s in talks with Nigeria on the new national carrier.
