Passengers on two aircraft belonging to Nigeria’s largest airline, Arik Air, had their flights disrupted on Sunday following incidences at the Lagos and Owerri airports.

Premium Times gathered that a Port Harcourt-bound flight was disrupted in Lagos after the scheduled aircraft was hit by a truck at the Lagos airport.

Another aircraft could not take off in Owerri as it was grounded shortly before take-off at the airport.

It was gathered that the airline’s Bombardier CRJ900 marked 5N-JEB, operating Owerri-Lagos flight, was grounded at the Sam Mbakwe Airport, Owerri, as a result of a technical issue on ground during pre-departure procedure.

The airline said a relief aircraft was immediately sent to Owerri to take the already checked in passengers to Lagos.

Arik Air in a statement said it has since reported the incidents to the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) in line with standard operating procedure.
