Medview Airline plane makes air return at Lagos airport

05 November 2015, 18:50

Lagos - A Medview Airline aircraft en route to Abuja on Thursday morning made an air return some minutes after take-off from the Murtala Muhammed Airport 2, Lagos.

A source told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the aircraft developed a pressurization problem which affected the cooling system while flying at about 8,000 feet.

The source said there was no panic as the pilot properly briefed the passengers and landed safely.

According to the source, another aircraft was made available immediately and the passengers were flown to Abuja.

Mr Sam Adurogboye, Acting General Manager, Public Relations, Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), confirmed the incident and told
NAN that the air return was a precautionary measure to prevent any untoward occurrence.

Adurogboye said the pilot acted according to Standard and Recommended Practices (SARPs), adding that such incidences should not be sensationalised.

"The pilot must have observed something which necessitated the return. That is the normal precautionary action he is expected to take.

"Once such incidence occurs, it is mandatory for the airline to make a report to the NCAA,’’ he added.

Adurogboye also restated NCAA’s commitment to the safety and security of Nigeria’s aviation sector.
