NCAA renews Azman Air’s licence, airline resumes operations

NCAA renews Azman Air’s licence

THE Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has renewed the Air Transport Licence (ATL) of Azman Air, upon fulfilment of all outstanding requirements.

A copy of the document sighted in Lagos on Friday, signed by NCAA Director General, Capt. Musa Nuhu, indicated the renewal.

The document, with reference number NCAA/ATR1/ATL118, indicates that it would be valid for a five year period from 2022 through 2027.

Recall that NCAA had on Thursday suspended Azman Air over the airline’s inability to renew its ATL, among other issues.

Nuhu said the renewal of the ATL would enable the airline to resume flight operations.

“The licence to operate the scheduled and non-scheduled passenger and cargo air services within and outside Nigeria is hereby granted, pursuant to Section and Section of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Regulations 2015,” the document read in part.

It indicates that this is for the period of five years, from Sept. 16, 2022 to Sept. 15, 2027.

It said that the utilisation of the licence should be in compliance with all relevant Civil Aviation Regulations. (NAN)
