Nigeria Air to be airborne in 2023?

We are delighted to share an exclusive interview by AeroTime with the Honourable Minister of Aviation of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Mr. Hadi Abubakar Sirika.


They talk about:

  • The expected launch of Nigeria Air in the first quarter of 2023 and its ownership structure with Ethiopian Airlines.
  • The fallout from the legal action taken by some of Nigeria’s domestic airlines as a result.
  • Developing connectivity to Nigeria and the Minister’s forecast of Nigeria seeing 50 to 60 million passengers per annum within the next decade under the Single African Air Transport Market?
  • Measures being put in place by the Nigerian government to prevent the build-up of unrepatriated airline ticket revenues.
  • Investments being made into Nigeria’s aviation infrastructure and personnel training.
