A passenger collapsed on-board an Air Peace flight 4P7140 to Abuja from Lagos on Wednesday afternoon.
It was gathered that passengers boarded the plane at about 12.30pm, while the departure time on their tickets was 1pm.
Sources at the carrier, some of the passengers and officials at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja confirmed that the incident happened when the......travellers were disembarking from the aircraft after it had touched down at the NAIA.
It was gathered that the passenger collapsed as the others were alighting from the aircraft.
It was further learnt that the emergency response team of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria delayed for about 30 minutes before showing up with an ambulance.
FAAN, however, denied the claim as it argued that its Port Health officials provided an ambulance immediately they were contacted by the crew of Air Peace.
An official of Air Peace, who pleaded not to be named as he was not authorised to speak on the matter, told our correspondent that the airline had to revive the man with oxygen and waited for close to 30 minutes before the Port Health officials arrived.
