Abuja Bound Passengers Filled Medview Plane Makes Emergency Air Return To Lagos

An Abuja- bound Medview Airlines Boeing aircraft with several passengers
on board on Thursday made an emergency return to the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Ikeja, Lagos, after the aircraft developed technical problem mid air.

The technical hitch, a pressurization problem, our correspondent gathered affected the aircraft’s cooling system.

An aviation source said the development prompted the pilot to brief the passengers on board before initiating the safety procedure of returning to the aerodrome of take – off otherwise known in aviation par lance as air return.

The Managing Director of Medview , Alhaji Muneer Bankole, confirmed the incident to our correspondent on Thursday.

He said the crew members took the professional decision to return the plane to Lagos rather than continuing with the flight.

He added that the airline provided another aircraft for the passenger to return to Abuja after they disembarked from the airplane that made air return.
