Blacklist: FG Amends Laws to Ease Aircraft Recovery

The Federal Government (FG) is drafting a law that mandates judges not to grant injunctions to aircraft that violate the dry lease

This was announced by the Minister of Aviation, Festus Keyamo on the Arise Television Morning Show on Monday.

Speaking during the interview, Keyamo thanked FG for his support and emphasized how this is essential in removing Nigeria from the blacklist,

“We are in the process of drafting a practice direction to satisfy the Aviation World Group that mandates judges not to grant injunctions for detained aircraft that are on dry lease in Nigeria as it gives Nigeria a bad name and also goes against the Cape Town Convention,” Keyamo said.

These legal reforms will streamline aircraft lease enforcement in Nigeria and one of the formulated practices will authorize the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) to facilitate the quick recovery of aircraft by lessors within five days of filing a request, involving cases of defaulting local airline operators.
