Nigeria to acquire 30 aircraft to boost operations of the aviation industry

Xinhua

LAGOS — Nigeria plans to buy 30 aircraft as part of measures to boost the operations of the aviation industry, according to a latest report from the government. The fund would be sourced from part of the aviation intervention fund of the government, spokesperson for the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria Yakubu Dati said during an inspection of the renovated Benin Airport on Wednesday.

Dati said the new development entailed buying and distributing aircraft to domestic airline operators unlike the old practice of giving out aviation intervention funds to them which they allegedly misused. He said the procurement of the aircraft would be funded by the Central Bank of Nigeria in conjunction with Bank of Industry, adding that the initiative would help reduce the cost of traveling by air in the West African country.
