JUST IN: Federal Government seizes foreign aircraft running commercial flights into Nigeria

Flair Aviation,  an aviation company with ties to Germany and the United Kingdom, has been caught operating commercial flights into Nigeria.

Hadi Sirika, the minister of aviation, said the aircraft has been seized and the crew is being interrogated.

According to Sirika, the company was given clearance for humanitarian operations.

“Flair Aviation, a UK company, was given approval for humanitarian operations but regrettably we caught them conducting commercial flights. This is callous!” he tweeted on Sunday.

“The craft is impounded, the crew being interrogated. There shall be maximum penalty. Wrong time to try our resolve!”

The federal government barred international flights into the country on March 21 as part of efforts to control the coronavirus outbreak.
