Nigeria Airways was founded on 23 August 1958.[1]:51 It succeeded the folded West African Airways Corporation (WAAC), and was initially named WAAC Nigeria. The company took over the WAAC assets and liabilities and started operations on 1 October 1958.[2] WAAC Nigeria changed its name to Nigeria Airways in 1971.[2] The carrier was wholly owned by the Government of Nigeria for almost its entire life. The airline ceased operations in 2003.[3][4][5]
