Emergency return by Lagos-Owerri flight a safety measure – Air Peace

A Lagos-Owerri bound Air Peace flight with no P47154 on Wednesday made an air return over engine failure.

The aircraft had departed the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos State.

In a statement by the management of the airline, it was noted that the aircraft was already airborne when the crew experienced a bleed in air challenge which prompted the flight to return to Lagos to rectify the fault.

The statement further noted that the aircraft landed safely without infringement and passengers disembarked safely and another aircraft was deployed immediately to operate the flight. 

While apologising to its affected customers, the airline management said, “We understand the passengers’ panics that result from situations like this and we regret the inconveniences that followed. However, it is very important to state that air return is not an unsafe practice. It is in fact a recommended safety precautionary measures if the pilots are not satisfied with any fault or event experienced on a flight.

“Air Peace is strictly committed to safety and never compromises on this.”
