At last, NCAA approves flight operations at Anambra Airport

The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has finally given clearance to the Anambra State Government to start operations at its airport.

This came weeks after the Airport was inaugurated by the state government but the NCAA did not approve flight operations, citing security concerns.

Air Peace Airline which had planned to operate to the airport at that time had to refund passengers.

However, the NCAA in a letter by the Director-General, Capt. Musa Nuhu, dated December 1, 2021, entitled, ‘Approval for opening Anambra International Cargo Airport”, and addressed to Governor  Willie Obiano urged the state government to adhere strictly to safety, security, and COVID-19 requirements at the airport at all times.

Nuhu noted that NCAA’s decision not to approve the airport for flight operations after the commissioning, was due to adverse security reports which were conveyed to the governor on October 28, vide a letter with reference number> NCAA/AC/015/21/VOL/162.

 The NCAA DG noted that the operation shall be Visual Flight Rules (VFR) only, meaning sunrise to sunset, adding that, “whenever outstanding requirements are met, all restrictions will be removed.”
