NCAA Set to Suspend Three Private Jet Operators for Commercial Flight Activities

The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has taken the decision to suspend the authorization of three private jet operators due to their involvement in commercial flight activities.

On Tuesday, Chris Najomo, the Acting Director General of the NCAA, issued a stern warning to all airlines, declaring the suspension of the three private operators.

Najomo mentioned that Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, had issued instructions for the discontinuation of private jets being used for commercial purposes in 2023; however, the operators persisted in this behavior.

“Subsequently, in March 2024, the NCAA had issued a stern warning to holders of the permit for non commercial flights, PNCF, against engaging in the carriage of passenger cargo or mail for hire and reward,”

“The Authority had also deployed its officials to monitor activities of private jets at terminals across the airports in Nigeria.

“As a consequence of this heightened surveillance, no fewer than three private operators have been found to be involved in violation of the annexure provision of their PNCF and Part 9114 of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Regulations 2023.

“In line with our zero tolerance for violation of regulations, the Authority has suspended the PNCF of these operators.”
