A flight belonging to Nigeria Air has landed in Abuja, Daily Trust reports.
The flight touched down at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja.
Daily Trust had reported that the flight which took off from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, was getting set for the journey to Nigeria’s capital city.
Two days ago, Daily Trust had reported how the promise that the national carrier would fly before the end of President Muhammadu Buhari’s tenure had not been kept.
Apparently reacting to the report, Hadi Sirika, Minister of Aviation, had said insisted that Nigeria Air would fly before the tenure of Buhari ends.
Speaking in a Channels Television interview, Sirika had said, “On the question of Nigeria Air, on Friday in two days, Nigeria Air plane will land in Nigeria as part of the processes to commence operation. We will on that day unveil this aircraft, the livery and everything in Nigeria’s colours, belong to Nigeria Air and we will proceed to go and do the retrofit and bring back those airplanes.”
Sources had told our correspondent that a plane already painted in Nigeria Air colour was planning to arrive the country from Ethiopian Airlines for a proposed test-flight, as of the time Sirika granted the interview.
Below is a video of the plane touching down in Nigeria on Friday afternoon.
