Nigeria , its Airlines and the economy will remain disadvantaged AS IS to Europe, Americas, Near & Middle East and Asia as long as stake holders ( Government & Operators ) LACK THE WILL to evolve strong players in the sector.

 

In the event that Government is not forthcoming with solution to the myriad of problems rightly identified by Airline Operators of Nigeria (AON), why shouldn’t operators be innovative enough to evolve synergistic solutions derivable from  collaborations, mergers and or acquisitions rather than the present parasitic Competition going on in the market place as it were in last 4 decades ? Small and Disunited Carriers !!!

 

But Africa will not continue to wait for Nigeria when the rest of the world is progressing with open skies and free market economies just because Nigeria Airlines and its business environment inhibit evolvement of strong carriers.

 

The truth is ICAO and IATA are pushing for it , ditto other strong economic partners of Nigeria and it will happen sooner than later.

 

We must put our acts together if we also don’t want to continue to loose in Africa with negative balance of trade as it were presently with other markets.
