The Federal Government has vowed to recover a total of N37bn from airlines still owing various categories of debts.
This is just as the government stated that the ban on Emirates Airlines would continue.
The Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, stated these at this week’s ministerial press briefing organised by the Presidential Communication Team at the presidential villa, Abuja.
Sirika who said airlines owed federal agencies N37bn also explained that Arik owed between N13bn and N14bn.
The minister added that the construction firm, Bi-Courtney, owed the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria about N14bn.
