Air Peace has said the delay and cancellation of some of its flights on Monday and Tuesday was as a result a power surge at the General Aviation Terminal of the Murtala Muhammed Airport (MMA) Lagos, which cut electricity supply to its offices at the facility.
A statement by the airline’s Corporate Communications Manager, Chris Iwarah, explained that the surge cut power supply to the airline’s server room and other facilities critical to its flight operations.
Air Peace, the statement added, had to resort to alternative arrangements to save its operations from entirely grinding to a halt pending the intervention of the managers of the facility, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN).
According to the statement, despite the measures taken by the airline to salvage the situation, the incident caused a lot of delays and outright cancellation of some of its flights.
Air Peace appealed for the understanding of air travellers, assuring that it had taken steps to normalise its operation.
