Published

on

The Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has warned holders of Permit for Non-Commercial Flights (PNCF), or private jet owners to desist from engaging in commercial flight operations forthwith or face stiff penalties.

PNCF holders are not allowed to use their aircraft for commercial operations including conveying paying passengers, or cargoes.

NCAA Director of Public Affairs & Consumer Protection, Michael Achimugu, in a statement on Wednesday said, “In line with Section 32 (4) of the Civil Aviation Act 2022, the NCAA will not hesitate to initiate enforcement actions against any PNCF holder found guilty of illegal operations with suspension, withdrawal or revocation of their Permit for Non-Commercial flight.

“The public is hereby notified that it is illegal to engage PNCF holders for commercial purposes. NCAA officials have also been deployed to General Aviation Terminals (GAT) and private wings of the airports to monitor the activities of the PNCF holders.

“The NCAA wishes to restate its zero tolerance for violations of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Regulations 2023 and shall continue to enforce strict compliance through the application of appropriate sanctions.”
