The Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB) said it has commenced probe into an incident involving a Med-View Airlines domestic flight on Tuesday.
The airline’s Chief Operating Officer, Michael Ajigbotoso, who disclosed this, said the incident happened when the aircraft used to operate flight VL2105 lost cabin pressure at an altitude of 32,000 feet.
He said the Tuesday incident, which happened at 3.10pm, was however handled professionally by Captain without posing any danger to the passengers.
“The oxygen masks dropped and were in good working condition for the passengers’ usage.
“The captain called for priority landing because he had been on number 7 on queue,” he said.
Ajigbotoso said the pilot’s request for priority landing was obliged and he made a safe landing and the passengers were calm as it did not pose a serious danger.
He added that the incident was promptly reported to the authority and investigation is ongoing.
