Air Peace Flight Returns to Base Over Cabin Pressurization
An Air Peace aircraft operating Flight 7252 from Lagos to Owerri on Thursday returned to base after the crew observed a change in the aircraft's cabin pressure. In a statement, Air Peace said the captain of the flight descended to a level where it would be comfortable for passengers before making a return to Lagos in line with global best practices in the aviation industry. Upon safely landing in Lagos, passengers on board, who had remained calm, were transferred to an alternate aircraft and flown to Owerri. Regretting the inconvenience and discomfort caused to customers on board the flight, the airline assured members of the public that the incident had nothing to do with the engines of the aircraft nor was it a life-threatening situation. The aircraft has since been thoroughly checked and confirmed serviceable. The aircraft went back into operations in less than an hour after going for maintenance checks. Air Peace is renowned for its quality maintenance reputation and sustains a high standard of flight operations and professionalism to guarantee the safety of passengers and crew.
