Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority has lifted the ban placed on Boeing 737 Max aircraft in the country's airspace.

The ban was announced by the Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, following the crash of two Boeing 737 Max aircraft, Lion Air Flight 610 and Ethiopian Airlines flight 320, which occurred minutes after takeoff.


In a statement signed by its Director-General Captain Musa Nuhu, the NCAA revealed that the lifting of the ban followed a review of the safety system of Boeing 737 MAX done by international aviation authorities.


Nuhu said the NCAA will continue to ensure strict compliance to Safety Regulations as violation will be viewed seriously.


According to the statement, the lifting of the ban took effect on February 12, 2021.
