The Airline Operators of Nigeria, the umbrella body for local airline operators, has said aside from lacking a legal framework, the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency does not provide any additional service to helicopter operators to justify the imposition of a landing fee.

The Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, had since called for the suspension of the new levy over outcry in the aviation industry.

The minister, however, set up a committee to look at the appropriateness or otherwise of the new levy payment by helicopter operators.

The umbrella body for scheduled and unscheduled airlines in Nigeria stressed that the imposition of the Helicopter Landing and Take-off Fee at private helipads, and oil rig platforms when no service is provided at those locations to the helicopter operators by NAMA is contrary to the provision of section 7 (1) (r) of the then applicable NAMA Act as well as to section 1, paragraph 2(1) of ICAO Document 9082
