There are more setbacks ahead for Nigeria Air as the launch date for national carrier has now being suspended.

The Minister of State Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika said earlier today, Wednesday, in Abuja while briefing newsmen.

He said the federal government took the decision to suspend the procurement of Nigeria Air at the federal executive council meeting.

It would be recalled that Sirika had announced the launch of the national carrier two months ago in London.

There are reports that Ethiopian Airlines and Deutche Lufthansa AG were some of the technical partners looking to partner with Nigeria on the project.
