The oldest airline in Nigeria is ending its existence as President Goodluck Jonathan has changed its name to Nigerian Eagle . and would be unveiiled today as a national carrier .
One of its aircraft, a Boeing 737-500 classic, painted with new livery and the new name, landed in Lagos at about 8:45 pm on Tuesday night and was secretly parked in a private fixed based operation (FBO) facility at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.
This confirms THISDAY’s earlier report that Aero which the federal government owns 60 per cent of its stakes would become a national carrier, but the name Nigerian Eagle was not the earlier name government designated for the flag carrier; rather it was announced that it would be called Nigeria One.
What is your view on this action and change????
