- The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) on Thursday threatened to publish names of airlines who had not been remitting the five per cent Ticket Sales Charge (TSC) to the authority.
- NCAA, in a statement by its General Manager, Public Affairs, Mr Fan Ndubuoke, in Lagos, said the airlines were also not remitting Cargo Sales Charge (CSC).
It gave the erring airline operators a 30-day ultimatum to comply with the directive on remittance of the outstanding payments.
- The statement said that the authority would enforce the provisions of section 27(3) of the Civil Aviation Act if they failed to pay the outstanding debts.
NCAA will, therefore, take all measures contained therein to enforce the collection of the debts.“In addition, the names of the debtor airlines and amount owed shall be published in at least five national dailies.“The names of the promoters of these airlines, directors and other related parties will be included in the publication upon the expiration of this ultimatum,” it said.
- The statement said that its non-remittance as and when due was tantamount to a breach of trust and a violation of the above provision.
It said the NCAA was issuing the ultimatum to the operators who had collected, but failed to remit same to the Authority, to do so within 30 days.
