The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority on Monday presented an Air Transport License (ATL) to the interim management of Nigeria Air, led by Captain Dapo Olumide.
Nigeria Air is the country’s proposed national carrier.
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.
Nigeria Air Limited, the country’s proposed national carrier had in April 2022 applied to the NCAA for a license to operate scheduled and non-scheduled passenger and cargo service.
