A United Kingdom based aircraft, Flair Aviation has been impounded by the Nigerian government for operating a commercial flight as against the humanitarian operations it was given approval to operate to Nigeria.
Nigeria’s Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, confirmed this on his official twitter handle saying the crew of the flight are also being interrogated as there shall be maximum penalty for the offence.
According to Hadi Sirika @hadisirika, “COVID-19. Flair Aviation, a UK company, was given approval for humanitarian operations but regrettably we caught them conducting commercial flights. This is callous! The craft is impounded, crew being interrogated. There shall be maximum penalty. Wrong time to try our resolve!”
