The NCAA had earlier issued the airline a warning over its use of small aircraft in Nigeria as well as not bringing passengers into Nigeria with their checked-in luggage.

According to Sidi, suspending the airline’s license will cause a lot of hardship for many Nigerians who have booked flights on the carrier.

Nigerian travelers had complained about the airline’s poor services, leading the NCAA to issue Turkish airlines a suspension threat.
