FG drops Lufthansa as national carrier advisor

Minister of State for Aviation, Hadi SIrika.

The Federal Executive Council has substituted Lufthansa Consulting with Airline Management Group and Avia Solutions GE to join the other members of the consortium providing transaction advisory services for the establishment of a national carrier.

Aviation Minister Hadi Sirika disclosed this to State House correspondents after the cabinet meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari.

He explained that the council felt that since Lufthansa is an appendage of the airline group, allowing it to be an advisor might bring conflict of interests.
