NCAA gives foreign airlines an ultimatum

17 April 2013, 08:31Henry Ifeanyi

Lagos - The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has given foreign airlines operating in the country two weeks to comply with its revenue automation requirements or face sanction.

The agency's Acting General Manager, Joyce Nkemakolam, told foreign airline representatives in Lagos that the ultimatum was necessary because of increased non-compliance by a substantial number of airlines with NCAA requirements.

According to NCAA’s regulations regarding revenue collection, the operating airlines are required to forward derivable data at the end of every flight operation to the regulatory authority at the shortest possible time, using NCAA’s Avitech, the firm handling the automation Portal.

This is for easy and transparent transaction and to facilitate appropriate billing for the ticket sales charge and cargo sales charge.

Nkemakolam explained that at the close of any flight the data required for billing is to cover several components: flight number, flight date, ticket number, ticket class, flight route, originating country, currency of sale, basic fare, etc.

Nkemakolam stated that while some airlines had asked for more time to synchronise their operating system with the portal, some were found to be struggling with parts of the components.

“NCAA is frowning at the delay in compliance as the alternate measure is manual composition which is cumbersome, time consuming and fraught with human errors. This error margin even if it is minimal can lead to loss of revenue,” he said.
