Welcome to NIGAV Website
We are thankful for yet another successful aviation year. With mixed beats, intrigues and excitement, the aviation industry has witnessed remarkable changes which most industry watchers see as a great sign of better things to come.
Behind the scene of successful and safe air transport services are the relentless efforts of hundreds of industry professionals and investors who work tirelessly round the clock. Government at all levels are greatly concerned about the prosperity of aviation as it connects directly to the prosperity of the state.
This year has in particularly witnessed one of most braving interventions by government in the sector in recent years with the enactment of the Executive Order on the Ease of Doing Business aimed at a rebirth of attitudinal change towards how business is done in Nigeria. The Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo at the wake of the order personally paid a visit to the flagship airport Murtala Muhammed International Airport and subsequently ordered the dismantling of the multiagency checking process, prohibiting of touting. This is with a view to instilling a sense of collective nationhood among aviation operatives. 2017 can be said to be a relatively safe and progressive aviation year.
As the Nigerian Aviation (NIGAV) Awards enters the seventh year as the primary independent watch dog of the industry whose programmes inspire best practice and promote industry excellence, the activities that permeate the 2017 Nigerian aviation year will be highlighted for building traveller confidence and creating a strong and positive perception of the travel industry in Nigeria.
The Award, tagged as Nigeria’s most prestigious air transport award, NIGAV awards is not just an industry motivating factor for excellence but it also engenders healthy competition that helps to deliver safer air travel. We are delighted with the recognition accorded this event by various industry groups and most importantly the pledge of continued support by the Honourable Minister of State for Aviation whose office is strategic to the process. We are also grateful to our main sponsor of NIGAV 2016 whom have given complimentary advert placement in the journal.
