United Nigeria Airlines’ foreign lease aircraft have all been halted by the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) following the airline operator’s Sunday flight from Lagos to Abuja being rerouted to Asaba.
According to reports, when a United Airlines aircraft arrived at Asaba International Airport on Sunday instead of Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport (NAIA), travelers voiced concerns.
As a result, there was a report that said United Nigeria Airlines has stopped all of its wet lease aircraft.
The information was verified by Benedict Adeyileka, a former Director General of the Agency, who talked exclusively on Monday.
He claimed that United Airlines might be suspended until an inquiry is conducted by the current NCAA DG, Captain Musa Nuhu.
He condemned United Airlines’s action, describing it as unprofessional and needing a thorough investigation.
It was now verified that their AOC’s sub-Part G is suspended. This indicates that every aircraft they have registered overseas is on subpart G.
The captain should have announced that the plane is landing at Asaba for whatever reason if you take the aircraft from Lagos to Abuja, but that was not the case.
The NCAA director has the authority to halt that activity while the matter is being investigated.”
