Japan's Nippon Cargo Airlines (NCA), which suspended all NCA operated aircraft from 17 June 2018 to provide time to verify its maintenance records, now plans to delay resumption of its operations by at least one week.

The cargo airline originally expected the stoppage to last one week, but it now needs extra time as the verification of the records will take longer than expected.

The first aircraft is now set to resume operating on 01 July 2018, with the rest of the aircraft operation resuming in sequence as soon as the aircraft safety is confirmed.
