 NEWS RELEASE

NCAA WADES INTO ARIK PASSENGER RIFT ....

GIVES AIRLINE 48 HOURS ULTIMATUM

 

The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has waded into the rift between Arik and it's passengers over the  failure of the airline to ferry their  baggages from London Heathrow, since Friday 2nd December 2016.

Consequently, a letter to that effect has been issued by the Authority to Arik Airlines.

In it, the airline has  been given 48 hours within which the backlog of all short landed baggage MUST be ferried into Lagos forthwith.

Similarly, NCAA has also  in line with Nigerian Civil Aviation Regulations (NCARs) 2015, Part 19, directed that all passengers with short landed baggage MUST be offered CARE and compensation in line with part 19. 17.2.1 (b) of the Regulation.

A compliance report including but not limited to the list of affected passengers, details of passenger handling should be forwarded to the Authority within 96 hours from the date of receipt of the letter from the Authority.

NCAA will continue to protect the rights and privileges of all stakeholders within the ambit of the law so as to continue to ensure safety and security of the aviation industry.
