NCAA suspend Mattini Airline’s Permit over Ibadan crash landing

The Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) suspended Mattini Airline Services Limited’s Permit for Non-Commercial Flight (PNCF) over the crash landing of its private jet in Ibadan yesterday with 10 passengers onboard.

This was made known in a statement by Mr Michael Achimugu, Director of Public Affairs and Consumer Protection of the agency, through its official channels. He said the suspension would remain effective until the company complied with the conditions outlined in the PNCF. 

“NCAA is aware of the runway excursion involving a Challenger CL 601 aircraft, operated by Mattini Airline Services Limited, with registration mark N580KR, at the Ibadan Airport on 26th January 2024.

“Mattini Airlines Services Limited holds a valid Permit for Non-Commercial Flight, PNCF. In line with statutory provisions, the Nigerian Safety Investigation Bureau, NSIB, has launched an investigation into the occurrence. While the NSIB is conducting the safety investigation, the NCAA has initiated an economic inquiry into the operation of the aircraft viz-a-viz the terms and conditions of the PNCF as detailed in its Annexure,” the statement said.

The regulatory agency assured Nigerians of its commitment to safety and the entrenchment of global best practices. “NCAA has further initiated a safety and economic audit of all private jet operations in Nigeria. NCAA wishes to assure the travelling public of its utmost commitment to safety and the entrenchment of global best practices.”

The suspension aligns with the section 32(4) of the Civil Aviation Act 2022.
