Troubled flyer, Air Nigeria, has announced that its scheduled Lagos - London - Lagos flight operation is not affected by the grounding of the company’s operations by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).

“Passengers are therefore encouraged to proceed with their confirmed itinerary while intending customers can make their reservations through all our sales channels. We however wish to apologize for all the inconvenience that the temporary suspension of our domestic and regional flights by the NCAA will bring on our passengers,” Air Nigeria’s Management said in a statement issued this morning in Lagos.

The statement assured that “Air Nigeria is committed to offering safe and secure flight operations at all times as just recently it was given a clean bill of health by the regulatory agency after a safety audit of its operations. We will continue to liaise with the relevant agencies to ensure that the suspension order is lifted as soon as possible.”

As was reported earlier today by Transport & Business Express, Air Nigeria was yesterday grounded for the second time in less than a fortnight by the NCAA over the company’s poor finances deemed capable of jeopardising flight operations.

The company’s chairman, Mr. Jimoh Ibrahim, stands accused of diverting loans obtained from Nigeria and abroad for the running of the airlines. He has already been sued by the Federal Inland revenue Service over unpaid taxes running into billions of naira.
