Med-View Airline Plc has issued a statement on the ban by the European Union which restricts its flight operation across Europe.
The company regarded the matter has been misunderstood by which the public as a total ban on its UK operations.
Med-View Airline hereby said its operations to London is in no way affected by the ban and has continued to operate with her wet-leased aircraft. The ban falls under exception rule in EASA, Annex A, which states that “Air carrier listed in Annex A could be permitted to exercise traffic rights by using wet-leased aircraft of an air carrier, which is not subject to an operating ban”.
Med-view said it regrets the anxiety the misinformation may have caused its teeming passengers and investors and assure them that there is no basis for alarm as the Lagos-London flight remains unaffected. Med-View Airline reinstates its commitment to safety, and the airline is currently working with EASA and NCAA to restore normalcy. The Airline on Wednesday, May 17, 2017 operated its normal schedule flight to London amidst the misinformation about the restriction.
Med-View Airline disclosed that it had passed through one of the most stringent operations audit of the global airlines’ body — the International Air Transport Association (IATA), after which it was issued with IOSA — 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.
