Air Peace First All-female Flight Crew Gets Rousing Ovation


A crowd of enthusiastic passengers, government officials and aviation regulators on Thursday poured out to celebrate Air Peace’s first all-female flight in Lagos, Abuja and Owerri in Nigeria.

The all-female flight crew included Capt. Sinmisola Ajibola, Senior First Officer Quincy Owen, SEP Instructor Rosemary Uagbor, Cabin Executives Chidimma Chimezie and Opakirite George.

The all-female flight, which took off from the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos, was operated days after Air Peace produced its first female Captain, Sinmisola Ajibola.

The flights were to promote gender equality in Nigeria and project Nigerian women as capable of standing tall among both their male and female counterparts across the world.

The Boeing 737-300 with Capt Simisola in command and co-piloted by SFO Quincy landed at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja at 3.29 p.m. to a water salute.

From Abuja, the aircraft flew into the Sam Mbakwe Cargo Airport, Owerri and touched down at 6.00 p.m., receiving another water salute and warm welcome from passengers and airport staff.

On behalf of the crew, Capt Sinmisola thanked Air Peace for giving them the opportunity to fly the historic flight, adding that Nigerians should get used to having women in the cockpit.

Other females involved in the operations were Engineer Justina Etim and dispatchers Chisom Onyeakposi, Olubukola Olajiga, Ladi Amadu and Loretta Ekeh.

Since commencing operations almost four years ago, Air peace has employed about 2,000 workers of which 1,500 are women.

Another Nigeria airline, Aerocontractors operated the first all-female flight in Nigeria a few years ago but Air Peace was the first Nigerian airline to deploy all-female crew on the Boeing 737.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
