In addition, the AFARN’s President congratulated Air Peace Airlines for its recent expansion into the Lagos-London route, urging other Nigerian carriers to explore similar opportunities.

He emphasized the importance of collaboration and alliances within the global aviation industry, emphasizing that no single airline can thrive alone.

Dr. Nwokoma hinted at upcoming plans to revitalize the aviation industry, particularly in the cargo sector, with the establishment of state-owned cargo airports aimed at boosting the economy and promoting Nigerian goods internationally.

He mentioned ongoing efforts to streamline operations and reduce bureaucratic procedures for imports and exports.

While acknowledging progress in the industry, Nwokoma reminded stakeholders of the upcoming Annual Safety Summit, scheduled for the third quarter of the year.

He stressed AFARN’s commitment to promoting safety in aviation through collaboration with industry experts.

AFARN’s President urged continued support for government initiatives to enhance the aviation sector, emphasizing AFARN’s role as a partner in progress.
