26 November 2015, Lagos – The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA, has suspended some oil marketers from supplying aviation fuel, known as Jet A1, to airlines due to a lack of depot facilities.
The regulatory body in a circular with reference number: NCAA/DAW/AD. 1104/AOL052/VOL.1, and signed by the Director of Airworthiness Standards, Benedict Adeyileka on behalf of the Director General of NCAA,
and addressed to Airline Operators of Nigeria, AOL, with the title, “Notice of Suspension of Some Companies from Providing Aviation Fuel Supply Services to Airlines at Airports in Nigeria”, explained that the reason for the suspension was that the said companies did not have depots and therefore should not be engaged in the distribution of aviation fuel at the airports.
The letter said, “This is to notify you that the authority is in receipt of a letter from the Department of Petroleum Resources, DPR, that the under-listed companies have no depot facilities and should not be engaged in aviation fuel distribution at the airport.”
