FG to Crack Down on Illegal Use of Private Jets for Commercial Purposes

The Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, has announced plans by the Federal Government to take strict action against private jet owners who illegally operate their aircraft for commercial purposes.

Keyamo noted a growing trend where individuals obtain Permits for Non-Commercial Flights for their private jets, but then operate these aircraft for commercial flights, sometimes up to six to eight times a day.

The Minister stated that the President has directed rigorous enforcement of regulations, with no exemptions for anyone, including friends of the President.

To enforce these regulations, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority NCAA has deployed officials to General Aviation Terminals and private sections of airports to monitor the activities of private jet owners, any private jet owner found conducting commercial operations or charter services will face serious consequences, including the suspension, withdrawal, or revocation of their permit, in accordance with Section 32(4) of the Civil Aviation Act 2022.
