A statement by the airline said contrary to alleged “rumour being circulated by the ex-finance director, our safety record was unbeatable.”
The airline advised the public to disregard the publication, either in the print, electronic or online media.
The statement reads in part: “The management of Air Nigeria wishes to draw the attention of the general public to the false and negative stories being spread by one of its ex-Finance Directors, John Nnorom.
“Mr. Nnorom only worked in the finance department of the airline before he was dismissed. The general public is advised to disregard any such negative stories and false information by Nnorom (either in the print, electronic or online media)
“Air Nigeria has been flying the air space in the last 10 years with first class record of safety, without any accidents or even emergency landings.
“This record remains the integrity of our existence which cannot be compromised. The airline is also a proud member of the IATA and the oldest member in West Africa and one of the oldest in Africa.”
