Captain Sinmisola Ajibola of Air Peace would today, lead the airline’s first all-female flight on the Lagos-Abuja, Abuja-Owerri, Owerri-Abuja and Abuja-Lagos routes.
By the flight, Air Peace female flight and cabin crew members would showcase their professional savvy in an arena that has been dominated by their male counterparts for almost four years running, taking full charge of the carrier’s four-sector flights.
The development is coming days after Air Peace gave command to Sinmisola, who made history as the airline’s first female captain and was decorated with her new rank by the chairman/chief executive officer, Mr. Allen Onyema on Monday, June 25. A statement issued by Air Peace corporate communications manager, Mr. Chris Iwarah, yesterday stated that the flight was planned in honour of the carrier’s first female captain, Sinmisola.
“Captain Sinmisola’s achievement is a testament to Air Peace’s avowed commitment to gender equality and promotion of Nigerian women in aviation as possessing the requisite skills to distinguish themselves anywhere across the globe in their chosen career,” the airline said. Air Peace explained that although, women occupy most of its top positions, “Sinmisola’s elevation is a great milestone in our effort to grow capacity for women in the cockpit.”
Sinmisola, who will be in command of the four-leg flight, would be assisted in the cockpit by senior first officer, Quincy Owen. The all-female crew flight scheduled to take off from the General Aviation Terminal (GAT) of the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos at 1310 hours is estimated to arrive Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja at 1420 hours.
The flight would depart the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport at 1450 and arrive at the Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport, Owerri to another round of water salute at 1550 hours.
