“This is following the recent air incidents, minor as they were because there are no fatalities, (but) the government did feel concern,” the spokesman told reporters after a cabinet meeting in the capital Abuja.
Nigeria’s airlines are plagued by problems - delays, cancellations and fuel shortages almost expected from domestic passengers. However, safety records in recent years have improved greatly.
In June 2012, a Dana Air flight crashed into a Lagos apartment block, killing 163 people in the country’s worst airline disaster in two decades.
Also last month, Dana came under fire after a passenger tweeted, with a photograph, that an emergency exit door had fallen off a plane as it touched down.
