FG to consider China’s newly-certified plane for Nigeria Air


Minister of aviation, Hadi Sirika, says the country may consider buying the newly-certified C919 passenger jet in China as an additional aircraft for the national carrier, Nigeria Air.

Sirika disclosed this on Saturday on the sidelines of the United Nations aviation agency’s triennial assembly in Montreal, Canada.

Sirika explained that the goal is to increase the number of planes for Nigeria Air to 30 planes by 2025.

He said that the new airline would have a mixture of Airbus and Boeing planes, adding that the carrier is also willing to look at the Chinese narrowbody jet, which Chinese regulators certified on Friday.
