The Director-General of the NCAA, Capt. Muhtar Usman, has announced that another airline, First Nation has suspended its operations.

This is coming on the heels of the announcement by Aero Contractors that the suspension of its operations will take effect from Thursday, September 1, 2016.

Usman said “The First Nation Airlines on its part is in the middle of an Engine Replacement Programme for one of its aircrafts.

“Another aircraft is due for mandatory maintenance as allowed by the regulatory authority.

“In these circumstances, these airlines clearly cannot continue to undertake schedule operations, hence the inevitable recourse to self-regulatory suspension.”
