Following an averted near incident involving a Max Air aircraft from Abuja, which landed on Runway 18L, and a maintenance vehicle belonging to the Civil Department of the Authority,  the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has suspended the airfield officer on duty at the time of the incident.

The Authority has also commenced full scale investigation into the incident, with a view to preventing future re- occurrence of such incident.

This is the second time this month Max Air is recording an incident.

The first one was on the 11th December, 2021 at the Benin airport when a taxing Max Air aircraft 5N-ADB rammed its right wing onto an Air Peace aircraft 5N-BUQ boarding Abuja bound passengers.

The hit damaged the left elevator of the aircraft thereby rendering the aircraft grounded and unserviceable.
