Keyamo Inaugurates Task Force to Combat Illegal Private Charter Operations in Nigeria Aviation Sector

The Honourable Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo SAN, today inaugurated the Ministerial Task Force on Illegal Private Charter Operations and Related Matters. This initiative aligns with the Minister’s strategic agenda to reform Nigeria’s aviation industry.

The initiative addresses the rampant illegal operations by private aircraft owners, which have led to significant revenue losses for the Federal Government and the AON. Moreover, these unauthorized activities pose severe risks to the safety and security of Nigerian citizens, highlighting an urgent need for regulatory enforcement and oversight.

The task force, chaired by Capt. Ado Sanusi (MD, Aero Contractors), comprises members drawn from both the public and private sectors of the industry. This diverse composition aims to balance regulatory enforcement with industry insights, enhancing the overall effectiveness of the task force.

By targeting illegal operations, the task force seeks to:
– Enhance operational safety.
– Restore financial integrity within the aviation sector.
– Foster a fair competitive environment for legitimate operators.
– Secure better compliance with aviation laws and regulations.
– Ultimately, build a more robust and trustworthy aviation industry for Nigeria.

The launch of this task force further emphasizes the Minister’s commitment to addressing critical issues within Nigeria’s aviation sector and ensuring compliant operations to enhance safety, revenue, and adherence. By tackling these illegal operations head-on, the initiative aims to set a new standard for Nigeria’s aviation industry. The committee is expected to come up with solutions in 3 months.
