Aviation sector

Russia has today announced plans to invest over $14 billion in its aviation industry by the end of the decade to increase domestic aircraft production. The goal is that 81% of aircraft operated by Russian airlines will be domestically built by 2030, according to Deputy Prime Minister Yury Borisov’s comment in a televised meeting of government officials.

Nigeria’s four main aviation unions on Wednesday vowed to ground activities in the sector from Tuesday, February 8, 2022, over the failure of the Federal Government to discharge the negotiated requirements of service of aviation agencies since 2013 and the non-implementation of the National Minimum Wage/consequential adjustment since 2019.
