The Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), today grounded Bellview Airline.

Although no official reasons were adduced for the action as officials of NCAA declined to pick our calls, Bellview has been facing some challenges, one of which is the airline’s inability to airlift passengers from one destination to another.

Recently, over 200 passengers that bought the airline’s ticket for a trip to London were stranded at the Lagos airport for about a week. The passengers embarked on a violent protest before they were eventually airlifted.

Meanwhile, the plan by aviation workers to paralyse activities at the General Aviation Terminal (GAT) following their threaten on Saturday, failed this morning due to the presence of heavily armed mobile policemen.

The policemen, led by a superintendent of police, Omololu Dishi, took over the GAT and the headquarters of the Federal Aviation Terminal as early as 6am today.

They stood at strategic locations and maintained that law and order will not be broken by the protesters. “We are here so that law and order will not be broken. We are also here to protect the Federal Government’s property as this is a very sensitive place and will not allow any crisis to take place here today.”

The General Secretary of the National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE), Comrade Gideon Ogeuji, told P.M.News that the director of State Security Services (SSS) at the airport has summoned them to a meeting today adding that if the meeting ends in a deadlock, no flight will take off or land by midnight today.

Meanwhile, activities went on as usual today as flight took off and landed peacefully.

Arik Air, one of the busiest airlines in the country, has vowed not to relocate to Nigeria Murtala Airport 2 as directed by the Federal Government.

A staff of FAAN told P.M.News that the MD of FAAN has told them he has handed over the terminal to Bi-Courtney Ltd. and no amount of protests will change anything.

Policemen had taken over the MMA2 at the time of filing this report

Godfirst: your comment was dumb. I bet you don't read nus about foreign countries. Do you know how many plane crash USA reported last year?

If it happens once a year in Nigeria, the whole country will cry, the press will make it hyper.

You guys always wash your dirty linen in the public.

A Nigeria embezzles national fund, they call it CORRUPT.........An American embezzles, they call it MISMANAGEMENT.

It is a pity 4 bellview airline to be grounded,i was cut up in the act to be airlifted back to london lately and i was compensated 10,000 naira.
this is not a funny topic,i beg the NCAA to please do something about it urgently because BELLVIEW air line is just like easy jet that runs cheap flight at affordable prices.

The federal govt should try and  encourage such services in our community and not to frustrate them,create price competition among the major carriers.

BELLVIEW mgt ,i give you kudus for your all your efforts to make flight cheaper in this global meltdown,i will be in support to patronise your services,please fight much harder to be able to regain your licence to fly LONDON  route.dont give up.
