An Air Service Agreement has been signed between Nigeria and Canada in a bid to bolster mutually beneficial flight operations between the two countries.
Nigeria’s Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, made the announcement after the federal executive meeting. He said that the new agreement would improve commerce, air connectivity and welcome a new direction where flights originating from Nigeria can directly connect with Canada.
Should the comments of the Aviation Minister hold, disengaged workers of the outdated Nigeria Airways would get their entitlements before the end of 2017.
Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has already given the green light for the disbursement of 45B naira to pay off what is owed to workers of the aforementioned carrier.
