NCAAThe Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA, yesterday imposed what it called an applicable sanction on Aero Contractors Airlines in line with Nigerian Civil Aviation Regulations, NCARs. Though, the specific sanction was not revealed, the agency said that it runs into millions of Naira. The pilot of the aircraft was also fined.

In a letter conveying the sanction, the Director General of the Regulatory Authority, Captain Muhtar Usman, said the action of the Airline in allowing the use of a ladder to disembark passengers from its aircraft in a non-emergency situation is contrary to its approved aircraft handling manual. The NCAA reiterated its earlier warning that all airlines should endeavour to adhere strictly to Civil Aviation Regulations.
