Oct 6, 2013 – Associated Airlines’ Operating License Suspended After Lagos Plane Crash

The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) on Saturday in Lagos suspended the operations of Associated Aviation Limited.

Associated Aviation Ltd. is the owner of the plane which crashed shortly after take-off in Ikeja on Thursday.

Capt. Fola Akinkuotu, the Director-General of NCAA, announced the suspension of the airline’s operations at a press briefing at the General Hospital, Ikeja.

Akinkuotu was at the hospital to see the survivors of the crash, who are undergoing treatment in the hospital.

“The operations of Associated Airlines have been suspended by the NCAA. Let me say for the purpose of clarity; all the operations of Associated Airlines have been suspended by the NCAA.

“I did not say any certification was cancelled but all the operations of the airline have been suspended,’’ he said.

Akinkuotu recalled that the ill-fated aircraft was certified airworthy before its last flight, adding that sustained airworthiness certification of an airplane was the responsibility of the airline itself.

He stressed that there was nothing contrary to the information provided by the airline on the state of the aircraft, adding that the insurance company handling the airline’s insurance had provided documents about the state of its insurance.

The NCAA boss vowed the agency would continue to apply all regulatory rules on all airlines.

Akinkuotu, who noted that the injured victims of the crash were responding positively to treatment, commended the management of the hospital for its state-of-the-art equipment.

The chartered airplane ferrying the remains of former Governor Olusegun Agagu of Ondo State and 20 other passengers crashed in Ikeja shortly after take-off.

Thirteen of the 20 passengers died in the crash, while seven survivors are receiving treatment in the state hospital.

      I really wonder how good NCAA job is. Must we wait till we see one of these birds fall before any action is taken? What about routine inspection, is not part of their job?
