Federal Government May Impose A ‘Fly Nigeria Policy’

The Federal Government has plans to impose a ‘fly Nigeria policy’, meaning that government officials should fly indigenous airlines if possible.

Such a policy would benefit Arik Air, which flies to London and New York from Lagos and Abuja.

    I’m not sure about this. In the 1970s through the 90s, Nigeria Airways was laid to waste through the so called Government Warrants i.e chits given in exchange for tickets by government offcials.

    Problem was that the relevant ministries never paid Nigeria Airways after the use of the tickets. Arik and other flag carriers..beware!

      YEah but the game is different now. Private airlines will not tolerate public acts of piracy!!! Besides, Arik Air specifically has even denied some public officials access to its aircraft due to bad conduct.
