Capt. Muhtar Usman, NCAA DG

The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority  (NCAA) has warned travelers to desist from patronising unregistered travel agents and directed all registered travel agents to display their certificates of registration or licences in their offices and other outlets.

According to a statement signed by Sam Adurogboye, NCAA General Manager, Public Relations ,and dated 26th August , 2018, ‘’the Nigeria Civil Aviation Regulations (Nig.CARs) 2015, Part 18.9 (111), prohibits the undertaking of the business of travel agency by any person in Nigeria, without a certificate of registration or licence issued by the authority, upon fulfillment of certain requirements, including that an applicant submits evidence of membership of the National Association of Nigeria Travel Agents.

‘’In addition, Section 30 (4) of the Civil Aviation Act 2006 empowers the Nigeria Civil Authority to regulate, supervise and monitor the activities of travel agents in Nigeria.

The NCAA therefore reiterates that prospective passengers should do business only with travel agencies registered with the regulatory authority.’’
