Medview Airline Makes Air return

MEDVIEWA Medview Airline enroute Abuja on Thursday made an air return after it took off from the Murital Muhammed Airport 2 in Lagos over sudden fault.

A source told NAN that the aircraft developed a pressurisation 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. Sam Adurogboye, acting general manager of public relations at 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 that necessitated the return.

That is the normal precautionary action he is expected to take,” he said. “Once such incident occurs, it is mandatory for the airline to make a report to the NCAA.” Adurogboye also restated NCAA’s commitment to the safety and security of Nigeria’s aviation sector.
