Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority Issues Licence to Azman Air

The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority ( NCAA) on Monday issued the Air Operators' Certificate ( AOC) to AZMAN Air Services, the latest entrant in the domestic air transport industry.

Speaking at the event, the acting director general of NCAA, Mr Benedict Adeyileka read the riot act to domestic airline operators, urging them to avoid cancellation of flights, delayed and deferred maintenance of aircraft and other infractions that constitute a threat to air safety.

He said the authority will not hesitate to clamp down on defaulting airlines.

Adeyileka said the NCAA issued the certificate to AZMAN Air Services after two years of scrutiny into the documents and manuals of the airline in line with the prescribed requirements.

The NCAA director general said beyond the issuance of the air operators ' certificate to the airline, its owners must pursue air safety and consumer satisfaction, if it wants to remain in sustainable business.

The era in which domestic airlines violate passenger rights through delayed flights and unnecessary cancellation, Adeyileka said would no longer be tolerated by the regulatory authority.

He said the airline must at all times pursue the safety of its operations as a primary responsibility, warning that any airline that has a questionable safety record would be banned .

He said: "Any airline that NCAA and its officials cannot fly will not be allowed to operate . Such airlines will be banned.

In his remarks, the president of AZMAN AIr Services , Alhaji Adbulmunaf Yunusa said the path towards achieving the certification was tortuous.

He said: "It is a day of celebration, having successfully accomplished the tedious and gruelling process of certification that the company embarked upon since 2011.
