The Senate has come out to say that it supports the suspension of AZMAN Airline by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA.

The NCAA Chairman, Senate Committee on Aviation, Senator Smart Adeyemi recently revealed this while speaking in Abuja, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, the decision of NCAA to suspend the operations of AZMAN Airline is sensible given the maintenance and safety issues emanating from the investigation of NCAA.

The Director-General of NCAA, Captain Musa Shuaibu Nuhu added that the significant tyre failure, plus damage to AZMAN Airline’s engine and the face large of the aircraft could not just be condoned in the nation any longer.

His words, “We invited their people to come and sit with us, we discussed, we thought we had resolved the issue, but there was a fine against the Airline and the Captain.”

“We did not want to grand them then, and we had to let them go. But on February 16 this year, the same aircraft landed in Lagos, the weather was bad and it had a significant tyre failure, and damage to the engine and the face large of the aircraft.”

“At that point because of the level of the damage to the aircraft, it now became the responsibility of the Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB )whose responsibility it is to investigate serious aircraft accident and Incident.”

“The airline, keep having the same maintenance issues, and is of concern to me that the aircraft keep having issues. It will be irresponsible and criminal negligence on our own part not to take any action.”

“I hate granding any airline, it is a lot of money for the operator, and it is going to cause a lot of inconvince for a lot of air travelers, but it will be criminal not to take action.”

“It is not to kill the airline but to work with the airline to see what the problems are and resolve them so that they can become a safe airline where we can recommend people to comfortably go and fly.”
