The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has maintained that there is no falsification or under-declaration of N502.2 billion air tickets sold for 2017.
The regulatory agency reaffirmed the sanctity of the recently released statistical data on the aviation industry. NCAA recently disclosed that both domestic and international airlines operating in Nigeria sold tickets worth N502.2 billion in 2017.
The regulatory agency said the ticket sale increased by 14.2 per cent (N82.7 billion) from N422.4 billion in 2016.
According to the agency, the airlines also made N400.9 million in 2017 through cargo charges, an increase from N285 million generated in 2016. But some stakeholders in the industry have, however, disputed the figures, alleging that the Federal Government lost more than N100 billion in Ticket Sales Charge (TSC) and Cargo Sales Charge (CSC) from 2013 to 2017 through under remittances.
