The Nigerian Government is working with the private sector to establish a National carrier with the aim of creating a regional West African hub
The National Carrier will have domestic, regional and intercontinental flights. It will further complement the existing airlines operating in Nigeria We expect the National Carrier to partner with Africa focused aircraft leasing businesses. It is expected that this will result in Nigerian passenger numbers exceeding 25 million by 2018 and 30 million by 2032.
The National carrier, along side the other existing Nigerian airlines will have access to newer, more affordable and suitable aircraft that can service the under utilised airports. This strategy is expected to create over 200,000 direct and indirect jobs and positively impacted GDP by up to $10bn by 2026. More travel, more trade, more jobs and more revenues for Nigeria! In 2012, the top 10 International Airlines operating in Nigerian carried over 1 million passengers and generated more than $1.5 billion revenues

The development of Aerotorpolis are in four locations Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt and Kano.
Primary Aims of the Aerotropolis Projects • The ABUJA and LAGOS Aerotropoli will have a mix of Agro processing, Manufacturing, Construction, IT, Shopping and Conference/Hospitality. This reflects the diverse economy in the regions as well a high level of aviation traffic which give these 2 cities the potentials to be the Conference capital of West, East and Central Africa. Taking into account the rapid population growths in both Lagos and Abuja, land has also been allocated for residential property to cater for this increased population. • The KANO Aerotropoli will primarily focus on perishable goods and agro processing and storage taking into account its proximity to the food baskets • The PORT HARCOURT Aerotropoli will focus mainly on manufacturing and oil service reflecting the economy of the region. The fact that a lot of the IOC’s are also located in the region provides an opportunity for Conference and Hotel facilities.
