By Baba Aminu
Max Air Limited has said it will resume its domestic flight operations from Sunday July 30 2023, following a temporary suspension due to safety concerns.
SOLACEBASE reports that the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), had on July 12, 2023 suspended Max Air Boeing 737 ( parts A3 and D43) aircraft from operation over safety concerns.
“The Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has suspended with immediate effect the parts A3 and D43 in the Operations Specifications of the Boeing B737 Aircraft type in the fleet of Max Air Limited,” a statement said.
NCAA said the action is based on several distress occurrences that involved the airline’s Boeing B737 aircraft types.
However, Max Air Limited in a statement on Saturday said ‘’We want to express our gratitude to our valued customers for their understanding and patience during this period.
‘’Safety is at the core of MaxAir Limited’s values, and we take our commitment to passenger safety with the utmost seriousness. After conducting a thorough internal investigation, it was brought to our attention that our operations were impacted by adulterated fuel.’’
