The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), has instructed five oil marketing companies to stop supplying aviation fuel, known as Jet A1 to airlines. This is because they lack depot facilities.
This is contained in a circular dated Nov. 9 and signed by the Director of Airworthiness Standards, Mr Benedict Adeyileka, on behalf of the Director General of NCAA, Capt. Muhtar Usman.
A copy of the circular was made available to aviation correspondents at Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) on Wednesday in Lagos.
The affected companies include Jushad Oil and Gas Limited, Lubcon Limited, Ascon Oil Company Limited, Acon Petroleum Limited and Star Orient Aviation Limited.
The circular, with reference number: NCAA/DAW/AD. 1104/AOL052/VOL.1 was addressed to Airline Operators of Nigeria (AON).
