Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority has lifted the suspension placed on Azman Air on March 15. The airline was placed on suspension over series of incidents involving the airline’s Boeing 737 aircraft.

This was disclosed by Azman in a statement it issued and seen by Saynaija.

The airline stated 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.

It stated, “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.

We can assure the general public that it is the beginning of a new experience. We remain committed to raising the standard when it comes to the safety of crew, equipment and passengers.”

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.

Its operations of all the Boeing 737 aircraft in its fleet were suspended by the regulator pursuant to Section 35 (2) of the Civil Aviation Act, 2006 and Part 1.3.3.3 (A) of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Regulations (Nig.CARs) 2015.
