Air Peace Flight Makes Air Return Over False Smoke Alarm
Air Peace Lagos-Owerri flight returned to base on Friday after a passenger on board informed the crew that he was smelling smoke in the cabin. The 9am flight, operated by a Boeing 737 aircraft, landed safely at Lagos airport as passengers on board maintained their calm. However, thorough checks by a team of Air Peace aircraft engineers, confirmed that there was no smoke anywhere in the aircraft. A statement issued by Air Peace said the Owerri-bound flight returned to Lagos as a precautionary measure and in line with the airline’s zero-risk policy. The airline assured that it would continue to place the safety of its guests and crew above any other consideration.
