The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has presented an Air Transport Licence to Nigeria Air’s interim management on Monday.

The ATL licence was received by the interim management of Air Nigeria, led by Captain Dapo Olumide, a former Managing Director of the defunct Virgin Nigeria Airways, at the NCAA headquarters in Abuja.

The ATL certification is one of the licences required for airlines to operate flight services. The other, the Air Operator’s Certificate, which comes shortly after the ATL, is currently being processed and should be granted by the end of July.

The ATL, with the number NCAA/ATR1/ATL214 and signed by NCAA Director General Captain Musa Nuhu, will run for five years, from June 3, 2022 to June 2, 2027.

The Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, had hinted that the much-awaited national carrier would commence operation by July.

The Ministry of Aviation had made this known via its official Twitter handle in a short statement which said:

“The @NigerianCAA will on Monday, June 6th 2022 present the Air Transport License (ATL) to the interim management of the #NigeriaAir, Nigeria’s national carrier at the NCAA’s Corporate headquarters, Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.”
