“With effect from today (Monday) I remove from register book and prohibit use of 208 aerodromes (small airports) for failing to comply with Regulation 323 and other provisions of the Civil Aviation (Aerodromes) Regulations of 2017,” he said in a press conference at TCAA head office.

He said the authority had issued a warning notice in May, giving an ultimatum of 31st December 2019 for all aerodrome operators to comply with the licensing and registration requirements.

“Apart from lacking the operational licenses and registration certificates, the airports are not operating at all,” he said.
