Turkish Airlines has issued, but not a detailed statement with regards warning by the Federal Government of Nigeria that it must solve ongoing baggage handling issues or risk being banned.

The airline pledged to comply to directives by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) of upgrading its aircraft.

There are reports circulating in several news websites that claim Turkish Airlines operations in Nigeria are suspended or to be suspended by Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).

We would like to announce that our operations continue in all of our destinations in Nigeria. The news reports on the subject do not reflect reality.

The airline was suspended following its inability to convey passengers with their luggage into the country for the past two weeks.

They were however suspended from using any of the nation’s airport until it has upgraded it’s Boeing 737-800 to a larger airbus that would be able to convey passengers with their luggage

But the management of Turkish Airlines during a meeting with NCAA Acting Director General Capt. Abdullahi Sidi on Saturday in Abuja pledged to commence immediately freight of all leftover passengers’ baggage back in Turkey.

The airline disclosed that the programme of clearance will be carried out from 13th to 17th December 2019.

NCAA DG said he expects strict compliance to this remedial programme and warns all operators to ensure Nigerians are not taken for granted by providing safe, secure and efficient service.
