Air Peace flight P47154 which departed Lagos at 12pm on August 27 for Owerri, Imo State could not land due to a bird strike, the management said.
A brief communique released on Sunday said the strike got the bird stuck on the left main landing gear of the aircraft.
The strike also affected the operating parameters of the landing gear which made the pilots follow regulatory safety procedures by returning to Lagos where they landed the aircraft safely without any incident.
Passengers disembarked normally and another aircraft has been deployed to operate the flight.
The airline apologised for the inconveniences caused to all passengers affected by this situation and assured of its strict compliance with established safety standards.
