The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has issued a stern warning to private jet owners against the unauthorized use of their aircraft for commercial purposes, stating that violators will face severe penalties.  

This directive was communicated through a statement by Michael Achimugu, Director of Public Affairs and Consumer Protection at the NCAA, and published on the Authority’s official X account. 

The statement clarifies that the Permit for Non-Commercial Flight (PNCF), granted to private jet owners, strictly prohibits using their aircraft for transporting passengers, cargo, or mail for compensation or hire.  

The NCAA emphasized that any private jet owner conducting commercial operations or charter services would face serious consequences, including the suspension, withdrawal, or revocation of their permit, as per Section 32 (4) of the Civil Aviation Act 2022. 

Additionally, the NCAA has intensified its oversight by deploying officials to General Aviation Terminals (GAT) and private sections of airports to monitor the activities of private jet owners and ensure compliance with aviation regulations.
