Nigeria to remove customs duties on aircraft and spares imports

The Nigerian Federal Government is planning to remove customs duties on imports of aircraft and spares.
The Director-General of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), Dr Harold Demuren has confirmed that the Minister of Aviation, Stella Oduah, had written letters to the Presidency to request the removal of duties, which had contributed to the huge cost of operating airlines in the country.
“We are working on how to remove duties for the importation of aircraft and aircraft parts. Cape Town Convention classified aircraft parts as mobile equipment and government is working on that. The Minister of Aviation has written a lot of letters and another letter is going again that government should please remove duties on aircraft and spares. This is going to help the industry.”
