The Director-General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), Capt. Muhtar Usman, has called for regular interactions between the regulatory authority and airline operators in the country.
Usman made the call at a meeting with the Airline Operators of Nigeria (AON) in Lagos.
A statement by the regulatory agency states that the meeting was primarily to discuss various issues affecting the aviation industry and proffer ways to build on the laudable gains so far.
It stated that among the issues deliberated upon at the meeting was the directive by the NCAA to the airlines to meet the deadline to join the automation platform for seamless remittance of five percent ticket and cargo sales charge.
The statement also noted that the airline operators were advised to take advantage of the window of the Billing Settlement Plan (BSP), simulator training, aircraft inspection and other services provided by the NCAA.
