An Analysis of Air Transportation in Nigeria

  • SI Ladan


Air Transportation is the transportation of passengers and cargo by aircraft and helicopters. An efficient air transport contributes to economic growth and development. However in Nigeria,lt suffer from poor reputation for operational efficiency and safety. This is attested by the present state of the industry in the country. Recently available statistics and data show an increase in the use of air transportation. In Nigeria this is facing problems which arise as a result of factors militating against efficiency of the system. These factors include absence of a coherent air transport policy, bad management, decaying facilities, loose security, closure of airports, intermittent air crashes etc. This paper therefore recommends that adequate measures should be taken to ensure efficiency of the system for economic growth and development in Nigeria.
