Nigerian Government investigates embarrassing picture at Bauch Airport

An embarrassing picture of showing passengers disembarking from a Boeing 737 aircraft, at the Bauchi airport with a ladder, went viral on social media over the weekend. According to Punch Newspapers, the Federal Government has instituted a probe into the matter to ascertain why it happened. The airline in the centre of the matter, Aero Contractors has issued a statement explaining the incident. “A special charter flight, operated by Aero to Bauchi, had problems with unserviceable equipment by the airport management in disembarking about 34 passengers from Abuja. Consequently, against the airline’s wish and operational safety guideline, the passengers used a ladder to disembark. “However, at the time of boarding, the air stairs were functional and the passengers boarded successfully. Aero wishes to state that it took adequate and safety measures for this operation, including the airport’s ground staff, to handle the air stairs equipment in Bauchi. Unfortunately, it became unserviceable at the point of disembarking.” Also speaking on the incident, the Minister of State for Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika said the incident was un-acceptable and inconsistent with aviation best practices and standards
