The Federal Republic of Nigeria was established in 1960, it covers an area of 923,768 sq km, its population is 125 million, its capital city is Abuja, and its official language is English.

February 2009: Air Midwest (AIW) is a new Nigerian start-up airline based at Sam Mbakwe International airport in Owerri, Imo State. It has already obtained all necessary licenses and permission to operate scheduled, non-scheduled, charter and cargo services on local and international routes and is preparing to start operations this month with three 737 airplanes, including a dedicated freighter. Direct daily passenger flights from Owerri to Lagos and Abuja will be operated with a 737-300. A 737-200 will be based at Lagos to operate onward connections to Abuja, Benin, and Port Harcourt.

The Imo State government has invested N100 million for a 20% stake in the new airline which hopes will stimulate increased activity at Sam Mbakwe airport and also make the State more accessible from Abuja and Lagos. Other investors include Imo Micro Finance Bank, Agro-Nova and Imo Wonder Lake Resort and Conference Centre.

(AIW) has signed an airplane maintenance agreement with Ethiopian Airlines (ETH) covering major repairs and "C" and "D" checks of its airplanes. Day to day maintenance and "A" and "B" checks will be carried out by Air Midwest in Lagos.

Imo State is located in the southeast region of Nigeria between Anambra State in the North and Rivers State in the South; and bounded on the East by Cross River State and Akwa Ibom State, and on the West by the River Niger and Bendel State. The state is rich in crude oil, natural gas and fertile, arable agricultural land. Owerri is the state capital and largest city.
