The House of Representatives have demanded N50bn as bailout for Nigeria’s aviation sector to cushion the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic while dismissing the N4bn proposed by the Federal Government as grossly inadequate.

The House Committee on Aviation, which addressed journalists in Abuja on Monday, noted that other countries were providing bailouts to their aviation industries.

Chairman of the committee, Nnolim Nnaji, said the just concluded public hearing on the amendment bills for the review of some aspects of the civil aviation Acts had brought to the fore the impending crisis in the aviation industry which requires urgent attention.

While alleging over regulation of domestic airlines, the committee decried inadequate night landing facilities in most of the airports, thereby affecting the operating flight hours daily.

Similarly, the Senate on Monday warned that traveling by air is now very risky and dangerous as a result of the poor state of aircraft being used to convey passengers by the operators.

The Senate Committee on Aviation raised the alarm after reviewing the views expressed by stakeholders during its recent public hearing it held on the six bills meant to reform the aviation sector
