Many airlines have applied for operating licences, but the majority fell by the wayside even before they started, while others are at the verge of scaling the hurdles. WOLE SHADARE examines the projected over-capacity on the route if eventually, the carriers get their Air Operator Certificate (AOC)
They came with the hope of getting the all-important AOC. The tedious process had made many of them to fall by the wayside. That is the fate of over 26 prospective airlines that were eyeing the domestic aviation market.
A total of 32 airlines made up of scheduled and non-scheduled operators are currently listed as holding AOC and are on the register of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) as at January 10, 2017 till date.
Airlines are categorised into scheduled and non-scheduled on the strength of the type of operations they carry out. A scheduled flight is a trip by aeroplane that has been planned for a certain time and date. Airlines sell tickets for scheduled flights to help travellers get from one destination to another.
The eight airlines that operate scheduled passenger operations are Aero Contractors, Arik, Overland Airways, Medview, Dana, Air Peace, AZMAN and First Nation Airways. A country’s civil aviation authority gets the power to issue AOC to an aircraft operator to allow it use aircraft for commercial purposes.
