The company’s plane was seized after it was found operating a commercial flight to Nigeria.
This contradicted the approval granted the airline to operate humanitarian flights.
Aviation Minister Hadi Sirika, confirmed this on his official twitter handle.
He said the crew of the flight are also being interrogated.
He promised maximum penalty for the offence.
COVID-19. 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!
