The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), has presented the Air Transport License (ATL) to the interim management of Nigeria Air.
The Ministry of Aviation took to its official Twitter handle, @fmaviationng on Monday, announcing the presentation of the ATL to the interim board of the new airline.
It wrote: “Presentation of Airline Transport Licence (ATL) to Interim Board of Nigeria Air. Nigeria Air is here and is going to provide quality service to Nigerians.”
The ATL signed by the Director-General of the NCAA, Captain Musa Nuhu will run for a period of five (5)years from June 3rd, 2022 to June 2nd, 2027.
The new national airline is expected to provide scheduled and non-scheduled services. It is one of the licenses received by airlines before they can commence operation just as they await the all-important Air Operator Certificate (AOC) that fully guarantees them the right to begin air services.
Nigeria Air Limited, the country’s proposed national carrier had in April 2022 applied to the NCAA for a license to operate scheduled and non-scheduled passenger and cargo service.
it is to be a public-private partnership with the federal government maintaining 5% stake, while 49% would be held by strategic equity partners and 46% by Nigerian entrepreneurs.
