16 March 2021

Following series of incidents involving Azman Air Boeing 737 aircraft, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) suspended the operations of all the Boeing 737 aircraft in the fleet of Azman Air Services Limited, with effect from March 15, 2021.

The suspension is to enable the NCAA to conduct an audit of the airline to determine the root cause(s) of the incidents, and recommend corrective actions.

The airline currently operates one Airbus A340-600, two Boeing 737-300’s and three Boeing 737-500’s.

In a recent incident a Boeing 737-500 suffered burst tyres upon landing at Lagos Airport, Nigeria.
