When Sagetravels.com contacted one of the team members of Minister of State for Aviation to inquire if any investor or investors have been selected for the National Carrier, he disclosed that none has been selected. However, he noted that the selection process is in accordance with ICRC regulations.

No, it will be a competitive process in accordance with ICRC regulations. Qatar and Ethiopian alongside other prospective investors have indicated interest to participate in the procurement process. he said

Recall that the minister in Farnborough International Airshow, London, disclosed that the new Nigeria Air is strictly a private sector affair as the private sector will have upper hand more than the government.

From the look of things, it seems that the battle is going to be between Qatar Airways and Ethiopian Airlines. Which among these two Airlines would you like to manage the Nigeria National Carrier, Nigeria Air?

Do you have any Investor in mind that you would like to recommend for the New Nigeria National Carrier, Nigeria Air?
