Kano, Kaduna pilgrims arrive Nigeria via Med-View Airline.
While the Lagos State pilgrims have almost completed their arrival from Mecca, being the first state to be airlifted from Jeddah, Kano and Kaduna pilgrims have started arriving the country.
The first batch comprising of 547 pilgrims, on Friday, arrived Kaduna International Airport via Med-View Airline.
The Media Consultant to the airline, Obuke Oyibotha, released a statement to that effect on Saturday in Lagos.
Oyibotha noted that the arrival of the pilgrims has laid to rest the rumours that Med-View Airline was not involved in the 2019 Hajj airlift.
He said another batch of 128 pilgrims was billed to arrive Kano, Yobe and Lagos on Saturday on Max Air Flight VM2020.
“Med-View Airline is one of the three carriers contracted by National Hajj Commission of Nigeria for the 2019 Hajj airlift.
“NAHCON initially gave Med-View 5,720 pilgrims to airlift, but later increased the number to 6,443,” he said.
He added that the airline would meet up with the schedule drawn in accordance with the mid-September deadline for all flights to lift their passengers from the holy land.
