Air Peace Assures on Yuletide Operations and Regional Expansion
Nigeria’s leading carrier, Air Peace has assured air travellers of smooth flight operations in the run-up to, during and after the Christmas and New Year celebrations.
The airline has said it will operate all its daily flights into and out of the Enugu Airport between the hours of 7am and 2pm during the partial closure of the airport’s runway for repairs.
In a statement, its Corporate Communications Manager, Mr. Chris Iwarah said more of the airline's aircraft had returned from maintenance to cater to the increased air travel demand around the Christmas and New Year.
The carrier which recently expanded its fleet size to 24, said it was ready to do everything within the parameters of safe flight operations to deliver on-time and consistent services during the yuletide.
Air Peace assured the travelling public that all its daily flights into and out of the facility from 7am to 2pm would operate as scheduled.
The airline, however, said other Enugu-bound flights from around 3pm when the runway of the facility was expected to be shut daily would be diverted to either the Owerri or Port Harcourt airport.
The airline added that passengers affected by the partial closure of the Enugu Airport could reschedule to any of the alternate airports for free.
Meanwhile, Air Peace has in another development, regretted the postponement of the launch of its Freetown, Banjul and Dakar services as part of the second phase of expanding its regional network.
Blaming the development on industrial unrest by air traffic control (ATC) in Dakar, Air Peace said it would announce a new launch date as soon as the industrial unrest in Dakar is over.
