MedView Airline today (Sunday) operated its scheduled flight to London Gatwick Airport, thus ending the alleged European Union (EU) restriction affecting its UK operations.
The Boeing 747 aircraft departed the Murtala Mohammed International Airport Ikeja with about 240 passengers.
The Airline Chief Operating Officer/ Accountable Manager, Engineer Lookman Animashaun said after the flight departed that; “Our Lagos-London operation is not in any way been hampered”. He also said; “Medview Airline has stabilized the fares on the route to the extent that other airlines that exploited Nigerians on the London route had to fall in line otherwise passengers will avoid them”.
It will be recall that few days ago, Med-View Airline was allegedly banned from Europe airspace.
While reacting to the ban Mr. Isiaq Na’Allah, Executive Director, Business Development, Med-View Airline Plc, said the B767 aircraft which the EU – European Air Safety Commission, EASA, used as the basis for the restriction was withdrawn from service five months ago.
