Med-View Airline has apologised to its passengers over the delay in arrival of some of their baggage from London to Lagos.
The firm, in a statement issued on Sunday in Lagos by its media consultant, Mr Oyibhota Obuke, explained that the embarrassment was caused by the inability of Gatwick Airport to “screen the baggage” because it was short-staffed as a result of the holiday.
Med-View noted that it had dispatched a special flight to London on Saturday to airlift the left over baggage, but unfortunately returned without the affected baggage following the inability of Gatwick Airport authorities to screen them.
“Gatwick Airport had on arrival of the aircraft said it had no capacity to screen the baggage as only a handful of its workforce was on duty because of holiday.
“The airline regrets the inconveniences caused the affected passengers whose left over baggage are still in London by this unhealthy development,” the company said in the statement.
The airline said it thought by Sunday, it would have “resolved the left over baggage issue if not for Gatwick Airport authorities.”
But it promised that it would bring back home the left over baggage as another flight would leave for London on Monday.
It appealed to the affected passengers for their understanding.
It would be recalled that on Thursday, London passengers of Med-View Airlines created a scene at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos over their delayed luggage.
