The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) said it has commenced investigation into the Air Peace’s Oxygen Mask incident that reportedly occurred in the airline’s Lagos-Enugu service last Friday.
This, the Authority said, is in line with standards and international best practices.
It stated in a press release that the investigation will be thorough and will include the review of the videos making the rounds in the social media.
“The investigation will be conducted in line with the Nigerian Civil Aviation Regulations (Nig.CARs) 2015. At the conclusion of the investigation, the recommendations will be fully implemented.
“The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) wishes to assure all passengers that all aircraft operating in Nigeria are airworthy (fit to fly). Our Ramp inspections have been strengthened accordingly with the seasonal increase in the volume of passengers.
“All operating airlines are therefore warned to observe the Standard and Recommended Practices (SARPs) as any infractions will be treated in line with the provision of the Regulations”, a statement signed by Sam Adurogboye, GM, Public Relations for the NCAA, said.
