NCAA Suspends Licenses Of 10 Private Jet Operators

The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has suspended the licenses of 10 private jet operators for failing to comply with the required recertification process.

According to a statement issued by the NCAA’s Director of Public Affairs and Consumer Protection, Michael Achimugu, the affected operators violated Regulation 18.3.4 of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Regulations 2023, which bans the use of private aircraft for commercial purposes without due approval.

The suspended operators include Ezuma Jets Ltd, Azikel Dredging Nigeria Ltd, Bli-Aviation Safety Services, Ferry Aviation Developments Ltd, Aero Lead ltd, Matrix Energy Ltd, Marrietta Management Services Ltd, Worldwide Skypaths Services, Sky Bird Air Ltd, and Mattini Airline Services Ltd.

The NCAA had earlier directed all holders of Permits for Non-Commercial Flights (PNCF) to undergo re-evaluation by April 19, 2024. The suspension takes effect immediately, and the public is warned not to engage the services of these operators for commercial purposes.

NCAA officials have been deployed to monitor activities at General Aviation Terminals (GAT) and private wings of airports to ensure compliance. The regulatory body vows to take enforcement action against any operator found guilty of illegal operations.
