EU Bans Med-View From Flying Into Europe


The European Commission has barred a Nigerian carrier, Med-View Airline, from flying into Europe.
A total of 174 airlines were barred due to safety oversight by aviation authorities in their home countries. Med-View Airline was listed under  EU Air Safety List Annex A, a list of non-European airlines that do not meet international safety standards and are, therefore, subject to an operating ban or operational restrictions within the European Union.
Executive Director, Business Development and Commercials, Mr. Isiaq Na’Allah, in a statement on Thursday said that its Lagos-London flight remained unaffected and that it had since been operating on the route with its wet-leased aircraft.
“There is no basis for alarm as the Lagos-London flight remains unaffected. We at Med-View Airline are committed to safety, and currently working with EASA and the NCAA to restore normalcy,” Na’Allah said.
He added that the airline had on Wednesday, May 17, 2017 operated its normal schedule flight to London.
Na’Allah stated, “It will be recalled that in March 2016, Med-View Airline passed through one of the most stringent operations audit of the global airlines’ body, the International Air Transport Association, after which it was issued with the International Operational Safety Audit.
“The airline has secured a B777 aircraft leased from an EU-member state to boost its international operations, which will soon join the fleet.”
