Nigerian Airspace Management Agency Warns Debtors To Pay Up Within 30-days Or Face Consequences
There will be no more leeway given to any airport or airline operating within the Federal republic with an outstanding balance owed to the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA).
It has requested prompt settlement within 30 days or it will impose severe penalties which may include denial of flights and closure of airports themselves.
The demand notice which expires on the 28th February 2020, as affected debtors had earlier been communicated with details of their respective indebtedness to NAMA but have made no efforts to pay

The Collection Letter read in part:
“NAMA hereby notifies debtor private / state-owned airport operators and airlines that effective February 28, 2020, our services will no longer be available for the operation of their airports or airlines as the agency can no longer keep its personnel working at airports without payment.
In the meantime, affected debtors, where in doubt, have been advised to liaise with the commercial department of NAMA for reconciliation and/ or clarification by the stipulated deadline.”
Sources within the agency have indicated that the various airlines' debt is over N3 billion as a result of most domestic airlines, including cargo and charter operators, being heavily indebted to the agency.
