The management of Overland Airways has clarified none of its aircraft was involved in any accident over the weekend at the Ilorin Airport in Kwara State.
It frowned at the use of its plane picture to illustrate a report by The Nation on Saturday in its online edition titled: “Passengers escape as plane crashes in Ilorin,” stating it could mislead the public.
The Airways, in a statement, explained: “Overland is an IATA member, which operates to the highest global safety standard with the globally acclaimed IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) Registration, a global benchmark of operational safety amongst the world’s biggest airlines.
“Overland Airways has been consistently operating scheduled and charter services for almost 20 years in Nigeria and West Africa region. Overland Airway is committed to providing safe and efficient air transport service to support our passengers as we well as Nigeria’s and the region’s economies.”
