Civilian helicopter transport provider Bristow Helicopters on Thursday suspended its operations in Nigeria following the crash of its copter in the Lagos Lagoon that killed six of the 12 people on board.


Bristow Helicopters spokesperson Cornelius Onuoha told reporters in Lagos, Nigeria’s business hub, that the suspension was in line with aviation standards.

Investigations were ongoing, he said, adding that “it was too early” to predict the cause of the incident.
A Bristow helicopter en route from a oil rig to Lagos crashed into lagoon on Wednesday. Six passengers were killed while the other six were rescued and receiving treatment.

Bristow Helicopters is part of the United States-based Bristow Group. Enditem
