Air Nigeria ends international flights

  • Air Nigeria made its final long-haul flights on Monday after announcing last week the suspension of all services.

    Investors behind the national carrier have struggled to deal with $250 million worth of inherited debt when they acquired the airline from Virgin two years ago.

    The decline of Air Nigeria leaves the country with four domestic carriers, a blow for the country’s booming economy.

    However, if the airline is able to find a solution to its debt problems, it could resume its operations.

    In the meantime, the Nigerian government is mulling over creating another national carrier.
