Nigeria Suspends Private Jets Flying Commercially

Nigeria is taking action against private jets that are being used for commercial flights, like carrying passengers for money. This is against the rules for these jets.

The country’s aviation minister ordered a review of all permits for private, non-commercial flights. This comes after Nigeria’s Civil Aviation Authority suspended three jets that were caught breaking the rules.

Aviation Minister Keyamo has taken a strong stance. He ordered a complete re-evaluation of all PNCF permits by April 19th, 2024. This aims to identify any other private jets that might be breaking the rules.

“These jets were found to be violating the terms of their permits,” explained an NCAA spokesperson. “They were essentially operating like air taxis, which is not allowed under their current permits.”

This suspension stems out of safety concerns. Commercial airlines have to follow stricter safety regulations and inspections compared to private jets under PNCF permits. This suspension ensures all jets operating commercially meet the necessary safety standards.
