Nigeria records improvement in global aviation safety rating

By Abimbola Fashakin, Lagos

Nigeria has stepped up its global civil aviation safety rating by attaining level three in State Safety Programme ( SSP) implementation process.

The spokesman of Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), Sam Adurogboye disclosed this on Monday, saying with the current attainment Nigeria has joined countries including United States and United Kingdom in the global safety echelon.

The safety categorization according to Adurogboye  is dependent on the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), which tracks the SSP implementation process of member-states via its Integrated Safety Trend Analysis and Reporting System (iSTARS).

With this achievement, the NCAA, Adurogboye said will continue to ensure that air transportation in Nigeria is seamless, safe and secure .

This is just as he urged airline operators to take advantage of the robust regulation and adhere to all safety regulations as contained in the Nigeria Civil Aviation Regulations

Adurogboye said only two member states-Australia and Sri Lanka- have achieved full implementation of the SSP according to ICAO records.

Nigeria, he said is striving to achieve Level 4 which will be stepped to 100 per cent  by the end 0f 2017, saying “The State Safety Programme (SSP) process is inaugurated in member countries in compliance with the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) requirements as contained in Annex 19 on Safety Management.
