NCAA to shut down airlines without valid insurance coverage


The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has threatened to ground any aircraft operated by any local airline without valid insurance coverage.

NCAA’s Director General, Captain Musa Nuhu, disclosed this in a recent letter with the reference, NCAA/DG/AIR/11/16/369 to all airline operators.

The regulatory body said it would sanction airlines who fail to heed the warning.

The NCAA reiterated that “all airlines and allied aviation services providers must not operate without adequate and valid insurance cover, submitting to the Authority copies of valid insurance certificates, evidence of payment of premium and other policy documents of insurance cover of not less than three months.

“The Authority wants to state that non-adherence to this Regulation will attract immediate sanctions, including grounding the specific aircraft and taking enforcement action against any airlines or service providers that defaulted.”
