Mounting Debts: NAMA Threatens To Withdraw Services To Debtor Airlines, Aerodromes
…Gives Feb. 28 As Deadline
The Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) has given a 30-day final demand notice to debtor airlines and private /state owned airports to settle all outstanding debts owed to the agency.
The 30-day ultimatum is coming following the refusal by the debtor airlines and private /state owned airports to make concrete effort to pay their debt.
According to NAMA, the demand notice which expires on February 28, 2020 expects all debtors to settle their indebtedness or risk sanctions.
Recalled that the affected debtors had earlier been communicated with details of their respective indebtedness to NAMA but have made no tangible effort to pay.
“NAMA hereby notifies debtor private /state owned airport operators and airlines that effective 28th February, 2020, our services will no longer be available for the operation of their airports or airlines as the agency can no longer keep its personnel working at airports without payment,” the notice earlier sent by the agency read in part.
In the meantime, the agency has advised the affected debtors, to liaise with the commercial department of NAMA for reconciliation and/ or clarification within the stipulated grace period where in doubt.
