As part of its business expansion strategy, BINANI Group of Companies is set to establish a domestic carrier called BINANI Air. The new airline now awaiting its operational licence from the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), aims to change the country’s aviation sector with modern fleet.
The BINANI Group of Companies was established by the only female Senator from the North, Sen. Aishatu Dahiru Ahmed Binani (Adamawa Central), who has left the board of the conglomerate having become a member of the Senate. The Binani Group of Companies has divested its activities into the aviation sector leading to the emergence of Binani Air. It was learnt that the company’s venture into aviation has attracted much goodwill from political leaders, businessmen, many political associates, supporters and well-wishers from Adamawa and the entire North-East.
According to investigations, the investment by BINANI Group of Companies comes at a time attempts are being made to revamp the economy of the North-East.
A source said BINANI Group’s airline ambition aims at “boosting the economy of the geopolitical zone.” with the aim to provide modern fleets in the country’s aviation sector.
