The Nigerian government is considering launching direct flight services to South America, according to statements made by Minister of Aviation Festus Keyamo during an interview with the State House media.

Keyamo highlighted recent developments in Nigeria’s aviation sector, including Air Peace’s inauguration of Lagos-London flights on March 20.

He indicated that more Nigerian airlines would soon expand their operations to additional international routes, including destinations in the Americas.

“We are exploring routes to North America and South America,” Keyamo stated. “Currently, there are no direct flights to South America, but we are actively planning to initiate these routes to benefit Nigerian travelers and reduce airfares.”

The minister emphasized that establishing these routes would also bolster Nigeria’s flag carriers, presenting them as national representatives rather than solely private enterprises.

“We want these airlines to be recognized internationally as Nigeria’s flag carriers, enhancing their status and ensuring they are respected abroad,” he added.
