Airline Operators of Nigeria move against a new national airline

Nigerian Aviation Minister Stella Oduah-Ogiemwonyi has run into opposition from the Airline Operators of Nigeria (AON) with her plan to float another national carrier. Since the liquidation of Nigeria Airways seven years ago, the country has not floated another national carrier. The AON is worried that Oduah-Ogiemwonyi is contemplating the creation of another national carrier.
AON is set to take its case against a new national carrier to the National Assembly and from there to the courts if need be.
The Federal Government has restated its commitment to refloat a national air-carrier even as it unveiled plans to set up five additional terminals by 2012. The air carrier would be completely driven by the private sector while the new terminals would serve the country in exporting its agricultural produce. The Federal Government will not have any percentage in the shares of the national carrier; it would be all private sector.
