Nigeria Air is the country’s proposed national carrier, which was unveiled on July 18, 2018 at the Farnborough Air Show in England.

The project was halted two months after it was announced due to concerns about its relevance and sustainability. The proposed airline was expected to have a preliminary cost of $8.8 million and a takeoff cost of $300 million.

Nigeria Airways, the country’s defunct airline, failed due to corruption and poor management.

However, the Nigerian government dismissed all concerns, stating that the airline would begin operations before the end of 2018, as promised by President Muhammadu Buhari during his 2015 election campaign.

A private Nigerian consortium, Ethiopian Airlines, and the federal government will jointly own the new airline.
