The remarkable performance in airlifting passengers earlier than expected during Hajj 2007/2008 no doubt, impressed the authorities of National Hajj commission (NAHCON) to call upon the newly incorporated airline to carry out rescue operations for pilgrims stranded in Ilorin, Lagos, Sokoto, Maiduguri and Yola during outbound to Saudi Arabia and those stranded in Saudi Arabia during inbound to Nigeria.
Med-View Airline second time participation in pilgrims airlift, 2008/2009 Hajj operations, witnessed another excellent performance. Rescue operations for the stranded pilgrims were equally carried out to the delight of NAHCON.
Year 2009 witnessed Med-view Airline participating in Umrah (lesser Hajj) operation. Med-View Airline is now being called upon by some state Governments after carefully studying Med-View track record since incorporation, in helping to airlift their Pilgrims smoothly.

Med-View was in the news (July 2017) regarding a stowaway on a Lagos to London flight. Aviation regulatory authorities have began investigating another stowaway on Med-View Airlines’ Lagos-London flight. The stowaway hid in the front wheel of the commercial flight, travelling unnoticed from Lagos to London and back to Lagos last weekend. It was, however, a mystery that man was recovered alive and well too, after over 12 hours in the air.
