The Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has suspended all the wet-leased aircraft in the operations of United Nigeria Airlines (UNA).
The suspension may not be unconnected with the diversion of the Abuja-bound flight from Lagos to Asaba Airport on Sunday by the cabin crew of the airline.
A source close to the agency, on Monday said the regulatory body took the decisive action after an emergency meeting held at its headquarters in Abuja.
It was learnt that at the meeting, the NCAA inspectors were not convinced about the claim of the airline that its crew diverted to Asaba due to bad weather at Abuja Airport.
The regulatory agency resolved that all the wet-leased aircraft in the fleetbof UNA would remain suspended until after the conclusion of the investigation into the incident.
This position, it was gathered has been communicated to the airline via a letter on Monday.
