The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) says it has “suspended the permit for 10 non commercial flights over failure to commence recertification process.”

According to NCAA, “The Nigeria Civil Aviation Regulations 2023, Part 18.3.4 forbids holders of PNCF from using their aircraft for carriage of passengers, cargo or mail for hire or reward (commercial operation or charter services).” As a result of the disregard of this rule, the NCAA says it had “earlier directed all holders of PNCF to undergo re-evaluation which should have been concluded by the 19th of April 2024.”

And to this end, the NCAA has “suspended the permit for non commercial flights of Azikel Dredging Nigeria Ltd, Bli-Aviation Safety Services, Ferry Aviation Developments Ltd, Matrix Energy Ltd, Marrietta Management Services Ltd, Worldwide Skypaths Services, Mattini Airline Services Ltd, Aero Lead Ltd, Sky Bird Air Ltd and Ezuma Jets Ltd.”

The NCAA therefore notified the public that “it is illegal to engage PNCF holders for commercial purposes” noting that the authority will not “hesitate to initiate enforcement actions against any PNCF holder found guilty of illegal operations.”

Furthermore, NCAA says its “officials have been deployed to General Aviation Terminals (GAT) and private wings of the airports to monitor activities of the PNCF holders.”
