Medview Flies In Over 3,000 Pilgrims To Lagos, Kaduna, Kano

Over 3,000 pilgrims, who performed the 2016 Hajj in Saudi Arabia, arrived on board Medview flights to Lagos, Kaduna and Kano.

According to the airline the latest flight arrived on this morning at the international wing of the Murtala Muhammed Airport(MMA) with 323 pilgrims.

The pilgrims comprised those who travelled through Med-View Travels Konsult and some other tour agents as well as pilgrims from Oyo State and they were conveyed in a Boeing 777-200 deployed for Hajj operations by Med-View Airline.

The airline airlifted pilgrims from the South-West states of Lagos, Oyo, Ogun, Osun and South-South, Armed Forces, as well as Kaduna.

The airline commenced the return journey on Monday, September 19, 2016 with the airlift of pilgrims from Osun and Lagos states.

The aircraft that flew in the pilgrims landed at Lagos at exactly 7:30 a.m amidst cheers and praises by the elated pilgrims.

The pilgrims described the trip as smooth and stress-free despite going through rigorous screening at the Saudi Airport.

Meanwhile, pilgrims who travelled through Med-View Konsult have hailed the services provided by the agency which is an arm of Med-View Airline, saying the agency, through its various initiatives ensured they had a remarkable Hajj experience.

One novel initiative of Med-View Airline, according to the pilgrims, was the provision of free feeding for them in the morning and evening both in Makkah and Madinah.

They said they were able to perform all the rites of Hajj without stress owing to the ample enlightenment and lecture provided by Med-View team.

One of the pilgrims Mr. Ahmed Ojikutu, said that  in as much as there  is always room for improvement, Med-View Travels Konsult had done excellently well in ensuring that the pilgrims performed the religious obligations in line with the dictates of Almighty Allah and traditions of Prophet Mohammad.

Med-View Head of Enlightenment, Imam Abdulsalam Abdulraheem advised the pilgrims not to return to their old bad ways of life, which they had vowed to relinquish during the Hajj, adding that they are now like new born babies without any sin.

He commended the cooperation and maturity displayed by the pilgrims during the Hajj exercise, which coincided with the 10th anniversary of the airline’s foray into Hajj operations.

Managing Director and Chief Executive of Med-View, Alhaji Muneer Bankole, disclosed that the airline had airlifted over 300,000 pilgrims since it started Hajj operations 10 years ago, while attributing the airline’s successes in the past decade to sincerity, honesty and commitment to the job.
