Nigeria In One Minute

Seven prospective airlines abandon NCAA’s certification process

About seven airlines applying for Air Operator’s Certificate have failed to complete it or have abandoned the process, The PUNCH has learnt.

According to findings by The PUNCH correspondent, investors apply for certificates to run airlines all the time but many of them take a long time to complete the process, while some abandon it altogether when they are unable to meet the requirements.

The AOC is the approval granted by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority to an airline operator to enable it to use aircraft for commercial purposes including charter and cargo operations.

Information obtained from the NCAA showed that as of the end of November, the AOC certification process of seven intending airlines had been declared dormant, while four were on hold.
