Arik Air

Two Arik Air planes on Tuesday “brushed” each other while maneuvering out of the apron at the General Aviation Terminal (GAT) of Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos, Vanguard reports.

As a result, the two planes had their wing tips damaged and have been grounded to allow further investigations into the cause of the occurrence.

Arik Air spokesman, Adebanji Ola, said in a statement:

Two of our aircraft, Boeing 737-800NG were this afternoon (yesterday) involved in a wing-tip brush at the General Aviation Terminal, GAT, of Murtala Muhammed Airport, Ikeja, Lagos.

One of the aircraft, 5N-MJP, was marshalled out of the ramp for a scheduled flight, when its wing brushed that of another aircraft, 5N-MJQ, parked on the ramp.

There were no incidences as the safety of passengers was not jeopardized. We have grounded the two aircraft and are looking into the incident.

    ATL’s finest you have no idea what you are saying.

    Arik is the largest airline in Nigeria, can you imagine what will happen if they are out of business? or how difficult it was for businesses to strive without air transport. Gerrrrraarrherrrreeee
