Bamidele Fashube, Abuja, Nigeria GVE – Less than 24 hours an aviation airline in Nigeria suspended its operation, a new airline, First Nation has also shut down its business in Nigeria.
The Nigeria’s Civil Aviation Authority confirmed that the domestic airline company has suspended its operations. The Director-General of the NCAA, Capt. Muhtar Usman, confirmed the suspension in a statement.
“The First Nation Airlines on its part is in the middle of an Engine Replacement Programme for one of its aircrafts. Another aircraft is due for mandatory maintenance as allowed by the regulatory authority.
“In these circumstances, these airlines clearly cannot continue to undertake schedule operations, hence the inevitable recourse to self-regulatory suspension.”
