The Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, has temporarily suspended the enforcement rights granted to Messers NAEBI Dynamic Concept Ltd by the Federal Government as consultants for collecting helicopter landing levies at aerodromes, helipads, and airstrips.

This came after a meeting with the Executives of Airline Operators of Nigeria regarding the collection of the levies.

The suspension was disclosed in a statement signed by the Head of Press, Odutayo Oluseyi, on Friday in Abuja, who said that the suspension took effect from May 30, 2024.
