The minister of aviation and aerospace development, Festus Keyamo says the Nigeria Air project remains suspended.

The development had elicited concerns among stakeholders nationwide over the ownership arrangement which gave Ethiopian Airlines a 49% equity stake.

The F.G had a 5% equity, while a consortium of three Nigerian investors had 46%. In August 2023, Keyamo announced that the national carrier project was suspended till further notice.
