Capital Airlines was an airline headquartered in Lagos, Nigeria, that operated scheduled and chartered domestic flights out of its base at Murtala Muhammed International Airport and Ilorin International Airport.
Capital Airlines was founded in 2003. The Nigerian government set a deadline of April 30, 2007 for all airlines operating in the country to re-capitalise or be grounded, in an effort to ensure better services and safety. Capital Airlines satisfied the demanded criteria in terms of re-capitalization and was re-registered for operation.
In 2009, Capital Airlines failed to meet the NCAA (Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority) requirement of having more than one aircraft,[further explanation needed] forcing it to suspend all flights in October 2009. The company was subsequently dissolved in 2010.
