NCAA renews Azman Air’s ATL after suspension

The Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has given the green light for Azman Air to resume its flight operations a day after withholding the Air Transport License (ATL) of the airline company.

NCAA Director-General, Musa Nuhu, in a statement on Thursday confirmed the suspension of Azman Air over the inability of the airline to provide the required documents for the renewal of its ATL.

Nuhu said, one of the critical documents was the tax certificate, which the airline could not provide because it failed to remit ticket and cargo sales charges amounting to N1.2 billion to the aviation agency.

In a separate statement on Friday, the regulatory agency said it has renewed Azman Air’s license.

The statement read “Consequent upon the fulfillment of all outstanding requirements, the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has renewed the Air Transport Licence (ATL) of Azman Air, enabling the Airline to resume flight operations”.
