Just In: Nigeria Air to begin operation in April 2022

Nigeria Air, the country’s national carrier, will begin flight operation in April 2022.

Minister of aviation Hadi Sirika announced the take-off date while briefing state house correspondents after the federal executive council (FEC) meeting at the presidential villa.

Sirika explains that the national carrier will be run by a company in which the Nigerian government will hold a five percent stake while Nigerian entrepreneurs will hold 46 percent.

He said the remaining 49 percent will be reserved for yet to be assigned strategic equity partners, including foreign investors.

Sirika added that about 70,000 jobs will be created for Nigerians when the national carrier begins full operation.

In 2018, the federal government unveiled Nigeria Air, at the Farnborough International Public Airshow in London, but later suspended its takeoff.
