Air Peace has marked its third anniversary by rewarding its customers and travel agents with 1,000 free tickets, television sets, fridges and other gifts.
The airline’s chairman and chief executive officer, Mr. Allen Onyema said in a signed statement issued today in Lagos that the gifts are the carrier’s way of showing gratitude and rewarding the loyalty and support of its customers and agents over the years.
Onyema attributed the “huge success of the airline in just three years to the unwavering loyalty and support of the flying public and travel agents.”
“We are quite excited that in just three years we have transformed Nigeria’s aviation sector. We ended the era of avoidable delays when we launched our flight operations to five cities on October 24, 2014 with a record on-time performance reputation.
“We have not only employed and retained the services of some of the best hands in the aviation industry; we have also ensured a tough regime of uncompromising attention to maintenance of our fleet to guarantee the safety and comfort of our esteemed guests.
“We owe our success to our loyal guests, agents, partners, corps of dedicated staff and, of course, God, who has been the unseen hands behind our operations in the aviation industry. Our valued guests have truly been amazing in their support and patronage. We are taking the liberty of our third anniversary celebration to reward their loyalty. We are issuing over 1,000 free tickets, mobile phones and other gift items as a token of our gratitude. We’re devoting a whole week beginning from Monday (today) to celebrating our guests and partners.
“We are, however, not resting on our oars. There is still much to be done and we solicit the continued support of our valued guests and partners as we expand our operations in the West Coast of Africa and launch our international flight operations beginning with Dubai, London, Atlanta, Guangzhou-China, Mumbai and Johannesburg.
“While we have acquired two B777 to service our international routes, we would be strengthening our local and regional services with the six ERJ145 and B737 aircraft we procured to increase our fleet size to 24. We assure of a very exciting flight experience in the days and months ahead,” he said.
It would be recalled that the airline launched scheduled operations to five destinations on October 24, 2014,
