Air Peace’s spokesman, Stanley Olise, who confirmed the incident insisted the deceased certified fit to fly.

“The passenger was certified fit to fly by Port Health officials in Calabar before boarding our aircraft, but the passenger developed a medical condition in-flight.

“On arrival at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport Abuja, we urgently notified the Port Health officials who confirmed the death and took the remains of the passenger to the hospital for the necessary protocols.

“Air Peace has thoroughly decontaminated its aircraft and Port Health is on top of the situation,” Olise said.
