Arik Air and IRS Airlines Grounded By Aviation Agencies

The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) and the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) grounded the flights of Arik Air and IRS Airlines yesterday morning, following their outstanding debts to the aviation agencies. The action was also intended as a signal to other airlines that are not paying the ticket sales tax. Flights resumed in the afternoon after intervention of the Minister of Aviation, and the issue will be further discussed today in Abuja.
