The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has lifted the suspension placed on Azman Air operations over safety issues.
Azman announced on Sunday that the lifting of the suspension was confirmed in a meeting held between the management of the domestic airline and NCAA on May 1, 2021.
The regulatory body had suspended the operations of all the Boeing 737 Aircraft in the Fleet of Azman Air Services Limited, with effect from March 15, 2021.
The suspension came after aeroplanes operated by the airline had suffered two tyre mishap incidents at the Abuja and Kaduna airports.
The NCAA had explained that it suspended Azman Air in order to enable the authority to conduct an audit of the airline and determine the root causes of the incidents, as well as recommend corrective actions to forestall future re-occurrence.
In the announcement, signed by the airline’s management, it said, “In this regard, having satisfactorily undergone the safety audit and implemented the corrective action plan as recommended by the regulatory body, we are pleased to inform the general public that the suspension is hereby lifted.”
The airline commended Musa Nuhu, director-general of NCAA for his support in ensuring it remains on the right track regarding safety.
