One of Nigeria’s airlines, Azman Air, has regained its Air Transport License, ATL about 24 hours after it was suspended by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).
NCAA said the suspension on the ATL of Azman Air was lifted upon fulfilment of all outstanding requirements by the airline.
A copy of the document sighted in Lagos on Friday, signed by NCAA Director General, Capt. Musa Nuhu, indicated the renewal.
Nuhu said the renewal of the ATL would enable the airline to resume flight operations.
“The licence to operate the scheduled and non-scheduled passenger and cargo air services within and outside Nigeria is hereby granted, pursuant to Section 184.108.40.206 and Section 220.127.116.11 of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Regulations 2015,” the document read in part.
It indicates that this is for the period of five years, from Sept. 16, 2022 to Sept. 15, 2027.
It said that the utilisation of the licence should be in compliance with all relevant Civil Aviation Regulations.
The document, with reference number NCAA/ATR1/ATL118, indicates that it would be valid for a five year period from 2022 through 2027.
Recall that NCAA had on Thursday suspended Azman Air over the airline’s inability to renew its ATL, among other issues.
