The Management of Max Air Operating this year 2019 Hajj Exercise Transportation has denied that their Plane carrying Pilgrims from Mecca Crash Landed at Niger State.
Captain Ibrahim Dilli, Director Flight Operation of Max Air limited said in a release made available to PRIME TIME NEWS on Saturday night in Kano that the plane Boeing 744 rather safe landed at the airport in Niger due to lack of Runaway Traffic lights and bad weather.
The statement said how can a plane would crash land with passengers without a scratch on any of the passenger and the aircraft was not damaged.
“Therefore the reports that our plane crashed landed is untrue is a mischief making calculated at tarnishing our long service of safely transportation of Nigerians and others”
The aircraft, a Boeing 744 with registration number 5N/ DBK was said to have developed technical fault in one of the plane’s four engines when it approached the Minna airport, something the director flights Operation described as totally false.
“Our Aircraft never developed any engine problems but rather whether at the airport and the lack of runway light forced us to save landed” the Captain Dilli added.
He said already Pilgrims are in good health who have since met their families, while the aircraft is refilling for further transportation of passengers.
