Truck Hits Air Airplane At Lagos Airport by sherifastro(m): 09:23 pm On 12 Dec 2017
A truck operated by one of the ground handling
companies on Thursday rammed into and damaged
an aircraft belonging to Air Peace at the Murtala
Muhammed Airport in Lagos, disrupting some of its
flights.
The incident occurred in the morning during the
loading of passengers’ luggage into the cargo hold of
the aircraft scheduled to service the carrier’s Lagos-
Uyo route.
A statement issued by the Corporate
Communications Manager of Air Peace, Mr. Chris
Iwarah said the door of the rear cargo hold of the
aircraft was impacted and damaged in the incident.
The aircraft, it added, had been declared
unserviceable. The airline’s Uyo-bound passengers,
the statement said, were rescheduled to fly later in
the day.
The airline said it deeply regretted the disruption of
its Lagos-Uyo service and the delay the incident
caused its passengers. It assured that arrangements
had been made to take the affected passengers to
their destinations.
It would be recalled that a truck belonging to another
ground handling company also hit and damaged an
aircraft belonging to Air Peace at the Benin Airport in
April this year.
Air Peace confirmed that officials of the Federal
Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), the Nigerian
Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) and the Accident
Investigation Bureau (AIB) were already investigating
the incident at the Lagos airport on Thursday
