Posted by JUSTOURS


The Chief Operating Officer, Air Peace, Mrs. Toyin Olajide, has said COVID-19 pandemic devastated airlines worldwide aad that Nigerian airlines including Air Peace were also affected y the health crisis.

“In recent times, our teeming customers have been worried that our flight frequencies have been drastically reduced to about 30 per cent of our capacity before COVID-19. They are equally worried that their favorite airline has also suspended their flight operations into some destinations. This has created some worries of varying degrees in the minds of those who really care for us- our customers.” she noted. Adding: ”We wish to state here and now that there is no cause for alarm. We still remain the airline to beat.”

Olajide explained that the airline had several aircraft out on C-Check maintenance abroad before COVID-19 and were caught up with the lockdown globally forcing the suspension of aircraft maintenance. She pointed out that the aircraft ferried overseas for checks that time were supposed to have since come back one after another but because of lockdown, the aircraft did not come back at the scheduled time.

She, however, said the aircraft are now returning to full flight operations and assured that it would connect all its domestic, regional and international destinations in the coming days.

“COVID-19 affected airlines everywhere in different ways. In our own case, we had several aircraft out on C-check maintenance abroad before COVID-19. These aircraft were supposed to have since come back one after another but because of lockdown in those countries since February, the maintenance facilities shut down too. No maintenance took place. The Nigerian C-Check regime is driven by calendar, which implies that every aircraft has a time frame they must go for mandatory checks which is usually between 18 months and 24 months,” she said.
