Its funny how all the local news websites/papers are showing photos of' a Flair Airlines B737! I certainly feel for the crew, as they will also have to spend 14 days in a government quarantine centre.

Certainly becoming a common theme with Flex/Privatefly/Flair, defying flight bans.. interesting to hear about the conclusion

This may open the Pandora's box of dodgy practices most of us have suspicion or experience of with biz jet operators

Ehh dodgy practices? In a comparison between Nigeria or ANY biz jet operator I will back the biz jet operator blind! The only two errors you can make in the pithole called Nigeria are:
  1. Pay the wrong person
  2. Paid not enough
So to say "served the operator right" or similar is pathetic

Interesting, Flairjet/Sirio/Privatefly's second known issue with the authorities during Covid 19. The first was the Legacy 600 in Marseille and now the Legacy is in trouble in Lagos breaking all sorts of rules.

Wonder what else this outfit are getting up to?

Well mr first post... as you seem to know it all: what sort of rules have they broken in Lagos (as if such a thing is possible there)

Bribery is an art. Get it wrong and the resulting offence, can manifest itself as described. Or, even worse you could be done for attempted bridery of an official.
How true, 200% right... That is why I hated the place... But on a serious note that is why as an US company like Flight Options or NetJets, which is under heavy anti bribery legislation, you need an excellent local "agent" to send you an invoice with shall we call it "consultancy fee"
