Aero Contractors, First Nation Airlines Not Folding Up – NCAA
The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has dismissed claims that some airlines are winding down their operations.
The regulatory agency insists these airlines are merely suspending their operations temporarily.
According to the agency, Aero Contractors at the moment has only one serviceable aircraft which is in contradiction to the Nigerian Civil Aviation regulations, which stipulates that no airline operator shall carry out scheduled commercial operation with only one aircraft.
In the case of First Nation, the regulator says the airline is in the middle of an engine replacement programme for one of its aircraft.
