The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has lifted the sanction it imposed on Lubcon, Ascon and Acorn petroleum Limited from supplying aviation fuel to domestic and foreign airlines at airports in Nigeria with immediate effect.
This was contained in a letter to Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Airlines and Aircraft operators and the Managing Director of Acorn Petroleum Limited ports and a copy made available to Nigerian NewsDirect.
The letters which was signed signed by the Director of Air-worthiness Standards Engr. Benedict Adeyileka on behalf of the Director General of NCAA said the suspension was lifted as a result of certification of Lubcon’s aviation fuel supply facilities by the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) and Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).
This certification was preceded by verification visits by top officials of the two regulatory agencies. These visits were found satisfactory.
The DG however advised the Petroleum companies to remain in compliance with all NCAA regulations.
