NCAA Suspends AZMAN Airlines Operations

Fast-growing Nigerian airline, AZMAN Air has been suspended by the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).

NCAA Director-General, Captain MUSA Nuhu, who disclosed this to newsmen said the suspension came on the heels of the recent incident involving an Azman aircraft that had a burst tyre on landing at the Lagos airport on February 16, 2021, as well as other incidents involving the airline’s aircraft.

Nuhu said the NCAA acted in pursuant to Section 35 (2) of the Civil Aviation Act, 2006 and Part (A) of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Regulations (Nig.CARs) 2015.

He explained that the suspension is to enable the authority conduct an audit of the airline to determine the root cause of the incidents and recommend corrective actions to forestall recurrence.

“We regrets the inconvenience this action may cause to the public, particularly to Azman air passengers but the need to ensure the safety of Air Transport and protect the public interest, cannot be compromised.

We will continue to ensure compliance to its regulations in the interest of safety and will viewed any violations seriously.” Nuhu said
