An aviation expert, Joel Ellers, who serves as the AIRBUS Airline Marketing Director for Africa, has emphasized the need for Nigeria to acquire an additional 159 aircraft by the year 2042 to meet its aviation demands and challenges. Ellers shared this insight during a press briefing held in Abuja.

According to dailypost.ng, Ellers notes that Nigeria’s aviation sector holds a huge economic opportunity for international and domestic investors.

He noted that non-African carriers carry 80 per cent of traffic into Africa.

“Airline Business modules are different; we will always work out the best module for Nigerian Airline operators.

“By 2042, there will be a need for 159 additional Aircraft to service Nigeria’s market,” he said.

The aviation expert further encouraged airlines to acquire new-generation aircraft, noting that they were more energy-efficient and profitable.

According to him, 75 per cent of aircraft flying worldwide are old-generation, while only 25 per cent are the latest generation.

DAILY POST recalls that last month, the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority introduced new regulations requiring all scheduled passenger airlines – start-ups and established carriers – to operate at least six aircraft to ensure they have the financial and operational capacity to maintain reliable and regular operations.
