The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has lifted the sanction it imposed on Lubcon oil from supplying aviation fuel to domestic and foreign airlines at airports in Nigeria with immediate effect.
The Group Executive Director of the firm, Adesoji Fagbemi has disclosed.
The firm was suspended few weeks ago for lack of requisite facilities at some airports to supply aviation fuel.
The lifting of the ban according to Fagbemi was contained in a letter to Lubcon signed by the Director of Airworthiness Standards Engr. Benedict Adeyileka on behalf of the Director General of NCAA.
The letter said the suspension was lifted as a result of certification of Lubcon’s aviation fuel supply facilities by the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) and Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority(NCAA).
The certification he said was preceded by verification visits by top officials of the two regulatory agencies.
The visits he said were found to satisfactory.
Fagbemi said: “The certification of the Lubcon Aviation Depot has resulted in the facility becoming one of the best in the industry. This is a confirmation of the enviable standards maintained by LUBCON.
“Lubcon commended DPR and NCAA for their quality assurances meeting international specifications.
“Lubcon wishes to assure all its aviation customers and stakeholders nationwide of its renewed commitment to continue to deliver quality services they have become accustomed to. LUBCON thanks them for their support and understanding during the period.”
