Boeing 737 Max 8 Ethiopia: Air Peace Clarifies Position


Air Peace has clarified its connection with Boeing B737 MAX 8, stating that the airlines is yet to take delivery of the aircraft which is still at the design and configuration stage of the order.
The leading airline in the West African sub-region has been in the spotlight following the ill-fated crash involving Ethiopian Airlines Boeing B737 MAX 8, killing 149 passengers on board and eight crew members, Sunday.
The most asked question in the country is, which airlines use the Boeing 737 MAX 8? It is prompted by the global fears over the safety of the Boeing 737 Max 8. Not a few have tasked Nigerian airlines to ground its own Boeing 737 MAX 8, pointing fingers pointedly particularly as Air Peace. No other airline in the country is believed to have acquired the expensive MAX 8. Australia and Singapore are said to have grounded Boeing 737 MAX 8.
In a quick reaction, Air Peace clarifies its Boeing 737 MAX 8 order, saying the firm’s order for 10 of the same aircraft type is still at the design and configuration stage of the order. The airline said the clarification has become necessary in view of numerous calls and enquiries on our response to the incidents involving the B737 Max 8 aircraft.
In a statement signed by Corporate Communications Manager, Air Peace, Chris Iwarah, the airline stated that: “Although it is premature to comment on the incidents, we wish to assure members of the flying public that we are closely following and monitoring developments on the issue as an airline that prioritises the safety and well-being of our customers.
“While we keep engaging with our partners in this regard, we repose implicit confidence in Boeing and aviation authorities to capably and satisfactorily address all the issues if at the conclusion of ongoing investigations it is discovered that the challenge is with the B737 Max 8.
We urge members of the flying public to continue to choose Air Peace as their preferred airline and trust us to always act in their best interest,” the statement also stated.
