The Aviation Minister, Mr. Hadi Sirika, has confirmed the seizure of a flair aircraft belonging to the United Kingdom(UK), which has been on an operation for years, impounded by the federal government.
Reasons for it’s impounded by the federal government was it failed to operate a commercial flight as against the humanitarian operations it was given approval for in Nigeria.
Sirika said, “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!”.
