Nigeria has unveiled a new national carrier and it is set to start flying in December 2018.
The new airline, Nigeria Air, was unveiled at the Farnborough International Public Airshow in London on Wednesday, July 18, 2018.
Nigeria Air is coming almost 15 years after Africa's largest economy shut down Nigerian Airways due to corruption and maladministration.
Business Insider takes a look at the Nigeria Air aircraft, logo, colour and tagline:
Nigeria Air, a short-form of the defunct pride of Africa, Nigerian Airways.
Although Nigeria is currently negotiating with Airbus, Boeing and other Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) on the supply of the National Carrier in collaboration with Standard Chartered Bank, Presidency reeled out these pictures of how it will look like:
