Italy To Launch Direct Flights To Nigeria Soon
The Italian government will soon launch direct flights from Italy to Nigeria, said its ambassador to Nigeria, Stefano De Leo.
“We plan to open an Italian trade agency in Lagos and, hopefully, soon launch direct flights between Italy and Nigeria,” Mr De Leo said.
The Italian envoy said this moments after signing a working agreement with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on behalf of the Italian news agency Agenzia Nazionale Stampa Associata (ANSA) in Abuja.
The ambassador added that the flights would lay the conditions for opening up other opportunities mutually beneficial to Italy and Nigeria in the near future.
“We are working closely with my colleague, the Ambassador of Nigeria to Italy, Mr Mfawa Abam. Today is a positive day because it signifies an important step towards improving the already excellent relations between both countries,” the envoy said.
The envoy said the working agreement signed between NAN and ANSA would see the two news agencies sharing information and knowledge.
