PRESS RELEASE FROM NAMA
The Management of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) hereby wishes to inform the general public that there would be no disruption in the provision of air traffic services on Monday, 20th April 2015 in line with the agency’s mandate to provide safe, economic, efficient and expeditious air navigation services.
The agency wishes to restate that the current agitation by Air Traffic Controllers on harmonization of professional allowances with other professional groups in NAMA has been addressed on its merit and resolved by the Federal Government.
On the strength of this resolution, there is no cause for any industrial disharmony by professional groups in the agency and further to our commitment to staff welfare, NAMA wishes to reassure the general public of the safety and security of the Nigerian airspace.
The service delivery capacity of the agency has been at optimum and further enhanced by the recent successful calibration of Navigational Aids across the country. In line with the agency’s vision, several safety-critical projects, in particular ADS-C/CPDLC, are being closed to fully optimize capacity.
Airlines, operators and other service providers who are dependent on the agency’s services are advised to go ahead with flights as scheduled.
