6-Key Summit Subject



Nigeria Aviation is currently embarking on extensive air transport infrastructure development with the remodeling and expansion of existing Federal Airports to increase in capacity to handle more passengers. It is expected that all the 22 airports of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FFAN) would  have received a complete face lift by year 2015 complimented by brand new airports  that are being developed in various States of the Federation such as Akwa-Ibom, Delta, Bauchi, Jegawa.

The economic transformation agenda of the Nigeria President Goodluck Jonathan has Aviation as key a priority to drive  its success and also as an  instrument for sustaining the Nigeria economic leadership position in Africa. Nigeria has an attractive market base of 170 million populations and a GDP estimated at US$ 502 billion with a growing middle class travel market.

Air travel demand in Nigeria is growing very fast for domestic, regional and international routes.  By 2015 more airlines will seek to increase their operations in Nigeria using it as hub  for the regional market of  West and central Africa. Total number of domestic and international passengers are expected to have grown beyond 16 million per year compared to 14.3 million in 2012.

Construction of new international terminals at Nigeria's four hub airports, Lagos, Abuja, Kano and Port Harcourt airports was approved by Government in Sep-2012 and hopefully will be ready by 2015. The projects is being developed by the China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC) with loan funding from the China Nexim Bank of USD500 million, under a 21-year build operate and transfer (B-O-T) agreement with the Chinese government.

The airport industry is therefore challenged now more that even before to keep track and  focus so as to justify the ongoing financial attention it is currently receiving. Airport Business Summit is designed to offer the platform to help operatives and allied business to discuss on further development and sustainability options with direct insight from key airport commercial executives, airline operators, as well as key business partners from airport retail, food & beverage, travel services, media and other enterprises from all sector with desire to increase the fortunes of airport operation and make more sustainable.

I will welcome you to attend

Press Release

Nigeria is to hold its first solely airport development business summit and exhibition. This event is aimed at addressing the low investment climate profile of the airport industry in Nigeria, even as Nigeria government continues to pump money into the sector with the objective of making it self dependent and true driver of economic growth.  It was an overwhelming feed from delegates who attended the past NIGAV for us to direct public attention to airport development and call for investors to take advantage of the opportunities presented by the industry for further job creation and sustainability.
