Unchecked frequencies of foreign airlines in Nigeria, threat to ‘local operators’

0 176

Local airline operators in Nigeria are expressing concern over the number of daily flights, or frequencies, that foreign airlines are operating in and out of the country. They fear that this situation could negatively impact their businesses and potentially push them out of operation if not addressed by the federal government.

The operators view the current aviation practice as unfavorable to local businesses and have called for a revision of agreements that allow international airlines to operate freely in Nigeria. They argue that this practice is harming the ease of doing business for local operators and could lead to the collapse of the industry within the next five to 10 years if not addressed.

Experts also share these concerns, emphasizing the need for a reassessment of the permissions granted to international airlines. They warn that the unrestricted operation of foreign airlines could destabilize the domestic market and have long-term repercussions for the entire aviation sector.
