Ex-Airways workers in Atlanta advocate for national carrier

Former members of XWT aircrew Atlanta chapter have called on the government to consider setting up a national carrier to ease the movement of passengers in and out of the country.

Speaking at the XWT aircrew convention 2016, the President of the association, Wola Adegbonmire said having a national carrier will not only transport people from place to place but serve as ambassador anywhere across the world.

Adegbonmire explained that airlines do not only advertise their countries but create awareness.

According to her, the XWT aircrew made up of former workers of the Nigeria Airways, crew among others has been duly registered with the aim of creating awareness to the defunct national airline and public charity works.

“This is a lawfully registered non-profit organisation that believe in bringing awareness to the defunct National Airline and public charity works.

“It is made up of former staff of the now defunct Nigeria Airways. Mostly predominant in this organisation are ex-cabin crew, cockpit crew and operations staff. We currently have several chapters in the United States of America, England and Nigeria,” she said.

She explained that the organisation was deliberating on ideas including ways of developing Nigeria’s aviation sector.

While commending members of the organisation, the President recognised the former SAHCOL boss, Dr. Olu Owolabi for his various contributions in ensuring the growth of the organisation.
