The much-expected national carrier would be unveiled before the end of the year.
This was disclosed weekend in Abuja by the Minister of Aviation, Princess Stella Oduah while speaking at the Aviation Workers Awards Night organized by Joint Consultative and Negotiating Council, JCNC as part of activities to mark the Aviation workers week.
The Aviation Minister further said that when the newly designed aerotropolis project is completed, it would provide jobs for at least 150, 000 Nigerians.
Oduah explained that the project is designed to offer businesses located near or having good access to the airport with speedy connectivity to their suppliers, customers and enterprise partners nationally and worldwide.
She further stated that the aerotropolis would contain a full set of commercial facilities that support airlines and aviation-linked businesses as well as millions of business and leisure travelers who pass through the airport annually.
Responding to the demands of the aviation workers to be accommodated in the execution of project, the Minister assured them that their housing needs would be catered for within the aerotropolis adding that they would also be given a well-deserved welfare package.
Said she: “As a Ministry which supervises aviation parastatals and agencies, you deserve to also go for training like those working in the agencies you are supervising”.
