For violating the Nigeria’s COVID-19 lockdown order, an aircraft belonging to a United Kingdom company — Flair Aviation — has been impounded on the orders of the Federal Government.
The Minister of Aviation, Sen. Hadi Sirika, disclosed this on Sunday on its twitter handle @hadisirika.
“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! ” he tweeted.


PerSecondnews recalls that President Muhammadu Buhari had in March shut the nation’s airports and airspace as part of measures to curtail the spread of COVID-19.

Recalling that no known company or aircraft has violated the order until today, Sirika,  said: “Flair Aviation, a UK company, was given approval for humanitarian operations but regrettably were caught conducting commercial flights in Nigeria.”

He said the company would face “maximum penalty” for the breach.
