The Nigerian Institute of Management (Chartered) has bestowed the ‘management Excellence’ award on the chairman/chief executive officer of Air Peace, Mr. Allen Onyema.
Speaking at the institute’s 2017 South-South Zonal Management Summit held in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, the deputy president of NIM, Prof. Olukunle Iyanda said the recipient had led the airline to make huge contributions to the development of Nigeria’s economy.

“We have observed, with keen interest, your strict adherence to the application of best management practices in the running of Air Peace (airline) since its inception.
“In addition, we have noticed the immense contributions which Air Peace has made towards the physical and socio-economic development of states in the (south-south) zone through the provision of employment and its palpable corporate social responsibility.”
