Airline Operators Hail FG Over Suspension of Nigeria Air Project

The Airline Operators of Nigeria (AON) has commended the Federal Government for suspending the planned National Carrier Project, saying it is in the interest of the nation.

In a statement, Chairman of AON, Captain Nogie Meggison commended the Federal Government  for heeding earlier calls for a rethink of the decision in view of the prevailing tough economic situation in the country.

He said it would have been unwise to spend a whooping sum of $3 billion on setting up a National Carrier that would further sink the growth of existing indigenous carrier.

According to him, there were private Nigerian Airline investors ready to invest and were already investing heavily on the sector and asking only for a friendlier operational environment and infrastructural support.

Captain Meggison noted that with the limited available resources and the effort to recover from recession, government should focus more on building and modernizing the industry infrastructure.
