Air Peace passenger certified fit to fly dies on board en route from Calabar
The deceased, 72-year-old, allegedly had a case of paraplegia due to spinal injury since 2019, and he was travelling for medical check-up in Abuja.
The airline spokesman, Stanley Olise, who insisted the deceased was certified fit to fly, confirmed the incident.
“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,” Olise said.
