Med-View-AirlineBy Chuks Okoh

MedView airlines got a clean bill of health for its aircraft after a test flight conducted by Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) inspectors on Sunday.

The 30-minute flight took the aircraft to Ibadan and back to Lagos with the inspectors on board.

On arrival, the inspectors okayed the aircraft to enter into service, saying they found nothing wrong with the aircraft.

They concluded that what was mistaken for smoke, which caused false fire alarm could have been thick fog from the aircraft’s cooling system.

The management of the airline commended the timely action of NCAA in conducting the checks on the aircraft and releasing it for normal flight operations.

Medview airlines said safety is the hallmark of all its operations.

The Abuja bound aircraft from Lagos made an air return minutes after take off on Saturday when a passenger raised an alarm over smoke which turned out to be false.
