Africa: As COVID-19 threatens global aviation, new airlines emerge in Nigeria

The devastating effects of the COVID-19 situation on the international aviation industry has led to the collapse of several major airlines, resulting in loss of jobs for thousands of aviation workers.

However, new airlines are emerging in Nigeria to take care of the low capacity in the air transport industry.

Signals from different parts of the world have shown that it will take years for the air transport industry to recover fully from the effects of COVID-19 situation.

According to a report on thisdaylive.com, indications show that the Nigerian aviation industry currently suffers from low capacity, but new airlines are emerging, with a belief that more operating aircraft are needed in the country.

The former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Aero Contractors, Captain Ado Sanusi, told THISDAY that in Nigeria there would be growth in the industry because the sector is currently underserved that it therefore needs more airlines and more aircraft to meet the surging demand.

He noted that as road transport continues to be unsafe due to security threats and rail transport is yet to connect all parts of the country, there would continue to be high demand for air travel in the country.
