Senate orders British Airways, Virgin, others to remit 5% PFS charges to Federal Government

ABUJA — THE Senate, yesterday, urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to as a matter of urgency, begin the investigation of British Airways and Virgin Atlantic Airways over alleged financial fraud and tax evasion.

Also yesterday, the Senate directed all foreign airlines operating in the country to immediately refund five per cent Passenger Fuel Surcharge, PFS, to the Federal Government. The Senate also noted that the PFS, being paid by Nigerian passengers who patronise the two British airlines, was not only fraudulent, discriminatory and against aviation regulations, but also a criminal act.
