Barely 24 hours after Aero Contractors Airlines announced suspension of its operations, another domestic carrier, First Nation Airlines, has followed suit, suspending its operations. The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) made this known on Thursday.
Aero Contractors Airlines, Nigeria’s second largest commercial carrier, announced an indefinite suspension of its scheduled flight services and its staff with effect from Thursday, September 1, 2016.
The Director-General of the NCAA, Capt. Muhtar Usman, explained that the decision was taken in order to ensure that the airline carried out the required maintenance of its aircraft.
