Azman Air resumes operation as NCAA lift ban

0 33

The Nigeria Civil Aviation Agency (NCAA) said it has renewed the Air Transport license of Azman Air after it fulfilled all outstanding requirements.

The NCAA had suspended Azman two months ago after grounding Aero Contractors and Dana Air in what is a reflection of the crisis rocking the aviation sector.

The agency in a press statement that was signed by the Director-General, NCAA, Captain Musa Nuhu, stated that the airline is now enabled to resume flight operations. “Consequent upon the fulfilment of all outstanding requirements, the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority has renewed the Air Transport license of Azman Air, enabling the Airline to resume flight operations,” the statement reads.

Nuhu has last week said the agency was withholding the Air Transport license of Azman Air till it provided the required documentation for its operational license’s renewal and sign a Memorandum of Understanding on how it would remit its legacy debt accrued from the collection of Passenger Service Charge.

The NCAA DG had insisted that Azman Air must sign the MoU to negotiate its debt remittance, which was part of the N42bn and $7.8m debts in PSC, and also provide tax clearance as one of the documentation for its ATL.

He said that as soon as the airline complied, it would get approvals as these were part of the renewal processes to ensure the regulator did not go under.
