Nippon Cargo Airlines – NCA has issued this statement:
Nippon Cargo Airlines will temporary suspend all aircraft operations as we found one inappropriate maintenance record concerning the lubricating oil supply to the aircraft parts (for JA14KZ) (above) at Narita airport on April 3, 2018.
In an abundance of caution and to ensure the safety of our operation, we decided to temporarily ground all aircraft until all maintenance records have been confirmed appropriate. (Flight stops starting from Narita airport departure flight on June 16, 2018 Japan time)
Details are under investigation, and we expect at least about one week to confirm the aircraft safety.
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and worries we caused our customers. We will do our utmost effort to check safety for resuming operation as quickly as possible.
