Air Peace explains flight disruptions, apologises to customers

Air Peace scales IOSA renewal hurdle

Domestic carrier, Air Peace, has apologised to its customers over the disruption of their flights on different routes on Friday.

Air Peace said in a statement by its Corporate Communications Manager, Chris Iwarah, that some of the airline’s scheduled flights were disrupted due to a depressurization challenge on its Lagos-Enugu flight.

He said this compelled the airline to declare the aircraft unserviceable in line with its uncompromising stance on matters of safety.

According to him, the airline regrets the resultant delay of flights on several routes due to the development.

Iwarah said “on Dec. 14, our Lagos-Enugu flight had a depressurization challenge, compelling us to declare it unserviceable upon safely landing at destination in line with our strict safety standards.

“Although depressurization is a common occurrence in aviation, we sincerely regret that the incident led to the disruption of our Enugu-Lagos service and other flights the aircraft was scheduled to operate.

“We are indeed sorry for the resultant inconvenience caused our esteemed customers.

“We have, however, made alternative arrangements to ensure the operation of the Enugu-Lagos and other services the aircraft was scheduled to do, while our team of engineers conduct proper checks on the aircraft, which has since been ferried to our base.”

He assured members of the flying public that Air Peace would continue to accord their safety a prime place in its operations and always act in their best interest.
