NCAA FECILITATES WITH AIR TRAVELLERS, POISE FOR SAFE OPERATIONS

The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority wishes all Airline Operators and all aviation stakeholders a happy Christmas celebration and a prosperous new year in advance.

We thanked God for a safe operation in the outgoing year and we looked forward to a safe and secured operation in the coming years. Safety is a collective responsibility and we appreciate the cooperation from all stake holders, particularly the airlines towards the safe operations in the outgoing year.

The Authority however notice with serious concern the huge debts of airlines as a result of failure to settle promptly invoices as at when due. This poses serious financial challenges to the various Parastatals that benefit from the 5% Ticket, Charter and Cargo Sales Charges.

Consequently, the Authority would be pleased to see that the Airlines put plans in place towards the full liquidation of all outstanding indebtedness. The settlement of those debts will go a long way in assisting Authority fulfill its statutory obligations to the Country and the world at large.

It is pertinent to point out that the Authority is fully committed to strict enforcement of compliance to safety Regulations in order to engender safe operations at all times.
