The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has tendered an apology to the management of Lagos based private airline operator, Jet Support Service.
In what appears to be an authoritative slip-up, the NCAA had on Friday, July 3rd 2020 issued a suspension notice of part G (Aircraft leasing operations) of challenger 604 jet, owned by Jet Support Service.
According to a statement signed by the Director General/ CEO of the NCAA, Captain Musa S. Nuhu, it read that Jet Support Service who is the operator of challenger 604 aircraft is “hereby suspended within the Nigerian airspace forthwith, pending compliance with the requirements of the Nig. CARs”.
However, within 24 hours of issuing the suspension notice, the NCAA in another letter, signed by Captain Musa S. Nuhu was issued to the management of Jet Support Services, apologizing “for the erroneous grounding your Challenger 604 aircraft with registration G-FABO”.
The letter further reads that the “the suspension is hereby lifted with immediate effect and all appropriate authorities will be notified to lift any restriction that might have been placed on the aircraft”
