The Federal government has impounded an aircraft belonging to Flair Aviation, a United Kingdom-based aviation company for operating a commercial flight against the humanitarian operations it was given approval for in Nigeria.
Aviation Minister Hadi Sirika confirmed this on his official twitter handle, saying the crew is also being interrogated as there shall be maximum penalty for the offense.
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, the crew being interrogated. There shall be a maximum penalty. Wrong time to try our resolve!”.
