British Airways has grounded its aircraft at Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Ikeja due to a technical fault.

The airline has apologized for the disruption in service.

Tutu Otuyalo, the airline's regional commercial manager for Nigeria and Ghana, informed journalists on Friday about the situation. She assured that the airline had expressed its apologies to the passengers.

Otuyalo mentioned that British Airways would cover the costs of accommodation and meals for the affected passengers.

She added that most passengers had already been rebooked on other flights, and the airline's team is working diligently to accommodate the remaining customers as soon as possible.

“We will cover accommodation and meal costs for the customers.

“We would never operate a flight unless it is safe to do so. Most of the affected passengers have been re-accommodated to other flights.

”We have been in contact with our customers to apologise for the delay in their flight caused by a technical issue with the aircraft,” she said.

Some of the affected passengers have been endorsed on available carriers such as Virgin Atlantic and Delta airlines.

Recall that British Airways flight number BA 74, which was scheduled to depart  Lagos for Heathrow, London, at 10.50 p.m. on Wednesday,  suffered a hitch as the scheduled aircraft developed a technical problem.

The flight was rescheduled and later cancelled due to a technical problem.
