FAAN CONTINUES TO GROUND INDEBTED AIRLINES

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has stated it will continue to grounding domestic carriers which are indebted to it. Fed up with continuing late payment of airport fees by airline operators in Nigeria, FAAN has stated that it will not hesitate to shut down the operations of persistent defaulters in the sector. “They are responding but the response is not impressive, which means if we are not satisfied during the week days, we will strike again,” said Akin Olukunle, general manager, public affairs for the authority.

The authority temporarily halted the operations of some indigenous carriers at the weekend, as he noted that the affected airlines have the choice to commence flight services as soon as they clear their debts. “It was a temporary action on our part; it’s just a suspension, so they can resume anytime as far as they come and clear themselves with us,” he said.

According to reports, FAAN suspended the operations of Aero Contractors, Dana Airlines, Chanchangi and IRS Airlines over their inability to pay up their debts to the authority.
