In a related report, following many months of negotiations and paperwork, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) on Monday presented an Air Transport License (ATL) to the interim management of Nigeria Air.
Nigeria Air is the country’s proposed national carrier that is currently led by Captain Dapo Olumide.
An ATL certification is a document that states the kinds of operations a carrier will embark on scheduled, non-scheduled, cargo air services within and outside Nigeria.
This licence precedes the Air Operator’s Certificate which empowers the airline to operate scheduled commercial flights.
The ATL signed by the Director-General of the NCAA, Captain Musa Nuhu, will run for a period of five (5)years from June 3rd, 2022 to June 2nd, 2027.
The new national airline is expected to provide scheduled and non-scheduled services. It is one of the licenses received by airlines before they can commence operation just as they await the all-important Air Operator Certificate (AOC) that fully guarantees them the right to begin air services.
