Three Nigerian Private Jet Operators Temporarily Lose Permits

This crackdown comes after the NCAA's stern warning in March against Permit for Non-Commercial Flights (PNCF) holders engaging in commercial operations

Nigeria’s Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has taken action against private jet operators flouting regulations by suspending the Permit for Non-Commercial Flights (PNCF) of three operators caught conducting commercial flights.

Acting Director General Capt. Chris Najomo stated that increased surveillance at Nigerian airports led to the grounding of three operators found violating their PNCF terms. Specifically, they breached annexure provisions and Part 9114 of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Regulations 2023.
