An Arik Air aircraft operating flight W3 7631 from Benin to Lagos yesterday aborted take-off when the Pilot in Command observed an abnormality during the take-off run.
The aircraft, a Bombardier CRJ900 was brought under control on the runway in the process with no damage to the aircraft and no injury to the passengers on board.
In an official statement signed by the airline’s Public Relations and Communications Manager, Mr Adebanji Ola yesterday, the airline stated that an alternative aircraft was immediately provided to fly the passengers to Lagos while the former aircraft has been ferried to Lagos for checks, observation and maintenance.
“Arik Air apologises to our customers for any inconveniences and restates its commitment to maintaining the highest safety standards at all times,” the airline stated.
