New National Airline to Create More Employment Opportunities – Centre for Aviation Safety and Research

Plans by the Federal Government to float a new national airline has received support from several quarters as an initiative that will help in the drive to create more jobs. One of these is Engr. Sheri Kyari of the Centre for Aviation Safety and Research.

A national carrier will deepen aviation capacity in Nigeria by providing employment to Nigerians and creating training opportunities for aviators in Nigeria.

The national carrier will also see to the establishment of a maintenance facility with added advantage of increasing chances of aircraft or components production in Nigeria.

Engr. Sheri A. Kyari, the founder/Executive Director, Centre for Aviation Safety and Research (CAS-R) stated this in Lagos at the launch of CAS-R.

“The National carrier will provide employment, start a maintenance facility with added advantage of increasing chances of aircraft or components production in Nigeria. Training will also be enhanced and many other benefits will accrue to the nation,” he said.

Kyari who also spoke on the controversies dogging the many concessions in the aviation industry, said the federal government should develop a standard document guiding all concessions to forestall controversies.

The government, “should fashion a standard document to guide all manner of concessions at the airport or in aviation as a whole. The Minister of Aviation will add to her cap if she could set-up a committee to tidy a generic concession guideline in order to discourage all manner of judicial adjudication from time to time. This is tarnishing the image of FAAN and sending wrong signals to prospective investors in aviation, especially foreign investors,” he noted.

On making air routes robust in Nigeria, he said, “airlines should deliberately collaborate with the Nigerian tourism industry and state governments to encourage the development of tourism sites.”
