Nyanbiting Airlines boss says company not banned

The owner of Nyanbiting Airlines, Adau James Mayol, has rubbished claims that her planes have been grounded by the South Sudan Civil Aviation Authority.

Mayol spoke to the media on Tuesday where she sought to debunk the reports that the controller had clamped down on her company, adding ” they can fly extra miles.’’

Mayol denied social media reports that Nyanbiting was suspended by the Civil Aviation Authority, for running a flight without the full flight crew members, that the flight was flown by one captain.

She said, “The crew of pilots is complete. We do not face any shortage; the flight crew consists of four employees.”

“What I want to emphasise is that I did not respond to these allegations in a hurry. “I visited the Civil Aviation Authority, where they denied the news and confirmed that they did not contact the newspaper,” Mayol said.

She denied that her company had been stopped, and stated that what was published was aimed to defame the company’s reputation and destroy its work.

”But for us, we consider it a tax for success. My goal is to serve the people of South Sudan, I do not hold any hatred against anyone. My message to the media is that they must verify any news before publishing it,” she stated.

Ms. Mayol revealed that they have started legal procedures against the local online media in Juba for publishing false news.

However, speaking to The City Review yesterday, the Director General-Air Navigation Service at the South Sudan Civil Aviation Authority, Stephen Rombe Lojulo said Antonov planes were banned from the airspace over safety concerns.

“Enough is enough, our people’s lives matter. We cannot continue spoiling our airspace like that. We have to put an end to these everyday plane crashes. Yes, we understand the plane accidents are there, but it should not be our recklessness,” Director Lojulo stressed.
