New investors for Nigeria’s aviation industry

The Nigeria aviation sector will soon witness new influx of investors as the Federal Ministry of Aviation is currently in talks with potential investors that have indicated interest in investing in the sector. Managing Director of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA), Engineer Mazi Nnamdi Udoh, who disclosed this to newsmen last week, said arrangements are in top gear to absorb newer airlines into the country. 

Speaking at the Special General Meeting of National Association of Aeronautical Engineers (NAAE) held at the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority’s (NCAA) Annex, Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, he said the interest being indicated by the investors was a fallout of the road show embarked upon by the Ministry of Aviation and top officials of the agencies in the sector to some countries abroad.

He said: “The issue is all about the management of those airlines, that is why in the spirit of transformation, we are now helping those airlines and new ones to come back to business and also provide them with an enabling environment so that those airlines will not go underground again.

And that is why we also embarked on a road show to various counties and the response has been enormous. We hope in the next one year, the issue of how many airlines we have in Nigeria will be a thing of the past. There are a lot of airlines that are coming, they are already asking for registration.”
