Airline Blames Diversion Of Abuja-Bound Flight To Asaba On Poor Weather

Nigerian domestic carrier, United Nigeria Airlines, has blamed “poor weather” for the diversion of an Abuja-bound flight to Asaba, the Delta State capital.

There was drama on Flight NUA 0504 from the Lagos airport on Sunday when the Abuja-bound passengers were flown to Asaba airport.

The cabin crew, upon landing in Asaba, told the passengers that they had arrived at Abuja airport, creating confusion among the passengers.

However, in a statement by a spokesman for the airline, Achilleus-Chud Uchegbu, United Nigeria Airlines acknowledged the error on the part of its cabin crew.

The airline explained that the pilots of the aircraft temporarily diverted the flight to the Asaba airport due to “poor destination weather”.

“At all material time, the Pilot of the aircraft was aware of the temporary diversion and was properly briefed.

“Meanwhile, the aircraft has landed safely in Abuja following improvement on destination weather,” the statement read.
