Why British Airways Remains Grounded At Lagos Airport – Otuyalo

BRITISH Airways has temporarily grounded flight operations at Murtala Muhammed International Airport, MMIA, Lagos, over a technical fault.

The carrier’s Regional Commercial Manager for Nigeria & Ghana, Mrs. Tutu Otuyalo, in a statement reacting to the delay, said passengers have been provided with accommodation.

This comes as passengers have been stranded at the Lagos International Airport.


“We will cover accommodation and meal costs for customers. We would never operate a flight unless it is safe to do so. Most of the affected passengers have been re-accommodated to other flights.”

The development comes as BA is unable to move passengers out of Nigeria through the Lagos Airport at the scheduled time.

The British Airlines flight number BA 74, which was scheduled to depart from Lagos to London at 10:50 on Wednesday, June 19, 2024, suffered technical problems.
