NIGCOMSAT TO OFFER NAVIGATIONAL SERVICES TO AIRLINES

The Federal Government, through the Nigerian Communications Satellite Limited, plans to provide Global Positioning Services to airline operators and other commercial entities, including the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation.

In order to achieve this, the L-Band in the Nigerian Communications Satellite, NigComSat-1R, has been activated and testing of the services will be carried out in the first quarter of 2019.

Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu, who made this known in Abuja yesterday, added that the test run would be carried out with aircraft belonging to the Nigerian Air Force before it would be deployed in the civil aviation sector.
