The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority says it has put in place automation to prevent emergence of new debt from airlines.

The General Manager, Public Relations of NCAA SAMUEL ADUROGBOYE said airlines indebtedness to NCAA was more than ten billion naira.

ADUROGBOYE said old debts owed by airlines were being defrayed as defaulters are expected to show evidence of payment before services were rendered.

Reports say the debts are accrued from five per cent ticket and cargo sales charges collected by the airlines in trust for the regulators.

The Ticket Sales Charges is a charge collected for the agency by the airlines in trust, to be remitted to government coffers in order to avoid collection before flight and creating confusion, delays and missed flight.

ADUROGBOYE said that the main source of revenue for the agency remained the internally generated income from the five per cent on TSC and five per cent cargo sales charges.
