The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority has threatened to penalize airlines and associated aviation services for failing to comply with the Nigerian Civil Aviation Regulations (Nig. CARs) 2022 regarding equipment insurance coverage.

The Director-General of Civil Aviation, Capt. Musa Nuhu issued a statement warning that failure to comply with this regulation would result in immediate sanctions, including grounding the specific aircraft and taking enforcement action against any airlines or service providers that defaulted. 

The statement was made available to aviation journalists on Sunday.

Nuhu said that this instruction was contained in an All Operator Letter with his personal signature and bearing the NCAA/DG/AIR/11/16/369 reference, dated August 11, 2023, and directed to all airlines and affiliated aviation service providers.

The statement suggested that compliance is a result of Nig. Cars 2022’s requirement that all airlines comply with Part of the regulations when it went into effect on July 10, 2023.

He claimed that the regulations’ Part mandates, among other things, that all airlines and other related aviation service providers must maintain adequate and valid insurance coverage and submit to the appropriate authority copies of valid insurance certificates, proof of premium payment, and other policy documents of insurance cover for a minimum of three months as specified in IS:

Having an insurance document is another requirement. It must be sufficient, renewed before the current policy expires, and sent to the NCAA as soon as it is renewed.

Therefore, he required adherence to the rules and reiterated that law enforcement would deal with violators.
