Westlink secures Nigeria aviation licence

03 June 2013, 16:48

Abuja - The Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) issued the airline an Air Operators Certificate (AOC) for general aviation and scheduled operations.

Director of Airworthiness Standards, NCAA, Benedict Adeyileka, said the entrance of West Link Airlines into the Nigerian aviation industry has opened way for other airlines operators to apply for AOCs.

The issuance of the AOC is a follow up to the airlines meeting the prescribed requirements by the NCAA, under the new Nigeria Civil Aviation Policy (NCAP), which became effective last month.

He urged the airlines’ team to ensure that the standard of safety does not fall below expectation and to maintain good safety records at all times.

Presenting the certificate, Adeyileka hailed the management of the airline for their patience after it took three years to process the application.

Chairman of West Link Airlines, Captain Ibrahim Mshelia said it has always his ambition to secure a licence since 1999.
The crisis in Jos in 2001 put paid to such plans.
