Five airlines – Air Peace, Overland Airways, Medview Airline, Aero Contractors and Allied Air Limited – have been commended by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) for consistency in the remittance of 5% Ticket Sales Charges/Cargo Sales Charges (TSC/CSC) to the government.
This payment is in compliance with the Nigeria Civil Aviation Act 2006 (As amended).
Other key considerations for recognition by the authority are timely remittance of Cargo Sales Charges (CSC); beneficial working relationship, especially the Aviation Revenue Automation Project (ARAP)/Direct Debit Mandate; and contribution to effective, efficient, safe and secure operations.
NCAA Director General, Capt. Muktar Usman expressed optimism that the operators will continue to honour their financial obligations and carry out seamless airline operations as he appreciated the operators for their efforts despite daunting challenges in the business environment.
The NCAA boss similarly congratulated Allied Air Limited on her success in the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Operational Safety Audit (IOSA).
Usman promise promised to look into all the challenges that are affecting operations of members of the Airline Operator of Nigeria (AON).
In another development, NCAA informed the public that the NCAA job vacancies trending online did not emanate from the organization.
‘’Therefore, unsuspecting Nigerians should be weary of such postings as Google has clearly discountenanced the post while NCAA has taken down the Career Path programme of the Federal Government that is being misunderstood by Employment agencies.
‘’Undoubtedly, NCAA is not recruiting presently and anytime the Authority is ready for such exercise, civil service guidelines will be followed.
‘’Nigerians are hereby advised to disregard the vacancies as published in the advertisement,’’ said NCAA.
