Air Peace celebrates its fifth anniversary today by rewarding passengers with various gifts including free tickets, souvenirs and pledges more improved air transport services.
In a statement issued in Lagos today, Air Peace chairman and chief executive officer, Mr. Allen Onyema said “the airline’s vision of creating seamless connections and network options for its domestic, regional and international markets is being achieved.”
Onyema described the airline as a “multi-country airline” adding that “it has been five years of steady progress.”
He expressed gratitude to every stakeholder who supported the airline since inception.
Similarly, the chief operating officer, Mrs. Oluwatoyin Olajide, said Air Peace had chosen to celebrate with the flying public because the “airline recognises that its customers are the reason for its existence.”
She urged air travelers to continue to fly Air Peace, adding that the airline is committed to giving them best-in-class flight experience.
“We assure the flying public of better days ahead as we also promise to continue improving our delivery of safe and comfortable flights,” she said.
She said the last five years “have not been devoid of challenges,” but added that such challenges only made the airline a stronger brand in the aviation industry.
“The past five years have been laden with challenges but our loyal customers have made the journey worthwhile for us, and we owe them as well as other stakeholders immense gratitude,” she said.
Olajide also said Air Peace had experienced consistent rise to become an airline of global repute.
Besides, she said the airline had recorded many firsts in the aviation industry in Nigeria and West Africa in its five years of existence.
“From seven aircraft and five routes at the launch of our operations on October 24, 2014 to 25 aircraft and 22 routes, our esteemed customers have consistently supported us and now, we can boast of being Nigeria’s and West Africa’s largest airline.
She said the current fleet excludes the 10 brand new Boeing 737 MAX 8 and 30 Embraer 195-E2 aircraft the airline ordered recently.
“In the area of economic empowerment, Olajide said the airline Air Peace “has created thousands of direct and indirect jobs for Nigerians and expatriates without any form of discrimination.”
