Passenger Dies While Air Peace Flight was Airborne

A 72-year-old male passenger on Air Peace Calabar-Abuja Flight P47182, yesterday died onboard while the flight was airborne.

Reports from Margret Ekpo International Airport, Calabar, disclosed that the deceased had a case of paraplegia due to spinal injury since 2019 and had been on medication and going for check-up in Abuja.

Spokesman Stanley Olise who said that the deceased was certified fit to fly before embarking on the flight, added that in Calabar there was no indication that the deceased was severely sick, as he was certified fit by the Federal Airports Authority of Nigerian (FAAN) to fly.

“The passenger was certified fit to fly by Port Health officials in Calabar before boarding our aircraft; but the passenger developed a medical condition in-flight.

“On arrival at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport Abuja, we urgently notified the Port Health officials who confirmed the death and took the remains of the passenger to the hospital for the necessary protocols. Air Peace has thoroughly decontaminated its aircraft and Port Health is on top of the situation,” he disclosed.
