Nigeria Air, the state’s proposed national carrier, plans to launch operations starting with three aircraft on lease. Federal Executive Council (FEC) announced (July 27, 2022) the approval granted to the new carrier to lease aircraft to build its initial fleet to launch operations.

“As to the make and type, we will be having eventually a mix of the two – the Airbus and the Boeing, because every airline that will grow big is either – or [… ], especially for the intercontinental and international flights.”

Hon. Hadi Sirika, Minister for Aviation, Nigeria, on July 27, 2022.
