Bayelsa Airport gets NCAA approval for flights operations
Commercial flight operations have been approved by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) for Bayelsa Airport.
Nuhu Musa, the NCAA Director-General, on Saturday presented the approval letter to Governor Douye Diri at the Government House, Yenagoa.
NAN reports indicated that the presentation followed the mandatory inspection of the airport and its facilities.
The NCAA DG said the airport met all airspace standards and is one hundred per cent ready for daytime flight operations.
The aviation regulatory body certified that out of 29 gaps, the airport had been able to close 26; other requirements are non-safety related.
Musa said the agency had to limit flight operations to daytime, as the runway lights were still being installed.
In his remarks, Diri commended former Governor Seriake Dickson for constructing the airport.
“Having been briefed on certain requirements, I wasted no time in approving what was necessary to ensure that the airport was ready for use”, Diri said.
The governor said all the necessary facilities and equipment were in place and assured that work on the runway lighting system would soon be completed.
