The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has taken action against three private jet operators for their involvement in commercial flights.

The suspension of their permits was announced in a notice posted on the NCAA’s website, signed by Acting Director General Captain Chris Najomo.

This move comes after warnings from Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, regarding unlicensed private jet operators conducting commercial services, which he stated were causing significant revenue loss to the Federal Government.

Despite previous warnings, these operators continued their commercial flight operations, leading to their suspension. Najomo emphasized the Authority’s commitment to enforcing regulations, stating that a re-evaluation of all permit holders would be conducted to ensure compliance. Additionally, he directed all holders of the Permit for Non-Commercial Flights (PNCF) to submit relevant documents within 72 hours.

The statement also addressed existing Air Operator Certificate (AOC) holders, urging compliance with regulations and emphasizing the importance of valid certification for charter operations.

The NCAA urged the public to avoid patronizing charter operators without valid certification and encouraged legitimate industry players to report any suspicious activities promptly.
