The Federal Government has imposed a fine of One Million Naira on Flairjet; a UK based charter company, for allowing a commercial flight into the country as opposed to the humanitarian operations it was given approval for.

The Minister of Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika, who confirmed the development on his official twitter handle said the Airline violated the Civil Aviation Regulations Implementation Standards and that the government had reported their misdemeanour to the British Civil Aviation Authority and the UK High Commission in Nigeria.

Senator Sirika had last week revealed that a Legacy 600 charter jet belonging to Flairjet, flew in from Cotonou and landed in Lagos with passengers.
