Intense surveillance of domestic airlines in Nigeria has commenced by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) following recent minor and major incidents in the industry.

Director General, NCAA Captain Usman in an interview with newsmen in Lagos, said the regulatory agency had directed all its inspectors to monitor the activities of the airlines more especially at the ramp areas and maintain it until there was a significant improvement on the current safety level in the industry.

He noted that NCAA no matter the current safety level would not rest on its oars, but would continue to beam its searchlight on all operators in order to prevent disaster.

The NCAA helmsman assured that the NCAA would continue to adhere strictly to the eight critical elements of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) in order to prevent an accident from happening in the system, adding NCAA had consistently carried out safety oversight functions of operating airlines in the country.

He also said that the regulatory agency was learning from the recent major and minor incidences, stressing that lessons learnt from the incidents would be put to use to prevent major calamities from happening in the industry.
