The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has commenced investigation into the Air Peace’s Oxygen Mask incident that reportedly occurred in the airline’s Lagos-Enugu service last Friday.
The Agency said the investigation is in line with standards and international best practices.
The Regulatory Authority said in their statement that the investigation will be thorough and will include the review of the videos making the rounds in the social media.
It noted that the investigation will be conducted in line with the Nigerian Civil Aviation Regulations (Nig.CARs) 2015, adding that at the conclusion of the investigation, the recommendations will be fully implemented.
Consequently, the Agency has assured 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” the Agency concluded in the statement.
