Private Jets Owners in Nigeria have been given a grace of 90 days ultimatum to come to specify their operational preference.
This is in line with the Ministry of Aviation’s stand to streamline the operations of the jet owners.

The ultimatum was given at the conclusion of a meeting between the officials of the Ministry of Aviation and the stakeholders in the General Aviation sector which warehouses all the owners and operators of private jets.

The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Aviation, Alhaji Mohammed Abass, gave the ultimatum after the meeting which lasted for several hours in Abuja.

As part of the unanimous decisions at the meeting, the blanket ban upon the operators of foreign registered privately operated aircraft in the country has been lifted with conditions attached.

The 90 days ultimatum is to enable all operators regularise their documentation to specify their choice of operation.

However, during this moratorium, it is still subsisting that no private Jet owner will be allowed to surreptitiously convert his Jet for commercial purposes.

At the end of the engagement attendees at the meeting agreed that any violator will be visited with much more stiffer penalties than earlier prescribed.
