Flight Suspension: Aero, FirstNation Still In Business-NCAA

| Leave a comment

Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has said that Aero Contractors and FirstNation merely suspended their operations temporarily to enable them undertake certain operational overhaul and strengthen their overall operational outlay.

The apex aviation agency, therefore, dismissed sundry claims that some airlines are winding down their operations due to the economic situation in the country.

Aero Contractors had on Monday, announced the suspension of their scheduled operations while First Nation Airlines had not been operational for a couple of days.

According to a statement from NCAA, one of the airlines, Aero Contractors Ltd., at present, has only one serviceable aircraft and this in contradiction to the Nigerian Civil Aviation Regulations (Nig.CARS) which stipulates that no airline operator shall carry out schedule commercial operation with only one aircraft.
