Lagos-bound Dana Air, fully loaded with passengers makes emergency landing
A Lagos bound flight, Dana Flight 9J402, made an emergency landing in Abuja at 2:25pm. The fully loaded plane developed a yet to be ascertained problem, leading to the emergency landing.
The pilot was said to have announced mid air that the flight could no longer continue for some obvious reasons.
As of press time, passengers were still in the aircraft waiting for an alternative flight.
Addressing the passengers 25 minutes after, the pilot said the emergency landing was done for safety reasons.
“In the interest of safety we had to return. Thanks for your understanding,” he added.
Meanwhile, passengers have disembarked and boarded another sister aircraft to Lagos.
