An indigenous airliner, Azman Air temporarily cancelled its operations in a bid to undergo a safety audit.

The organisation said the suspension was as a result of the “comprehensive” audit of its internal safety processes which will be supervised by aviation regulators.
“These actions are imminent as there is need to reposition in order to serve you better.
“We understand the impact of these disruptions on your travels, and we deeply apologise,” Azman management said.
The airline also noted that it is aiming to demonstrate its “commitment” to safety.
“We are working round the clock to ensure the necessary tasks are done and operations restored within a short period of time,” it said.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian Liquidfied Natural Gas (NLNG) cargo is expected to arrive Portugal by March 23, 2021.
The cargo will be received by REN’s Sines LNG import terminal located at Portugal’s Atlantic coast.
