Domestic carrier, Air Peace on Tuesday received the last of the six 50-seater Embraer 145 jets it recently acquired, assuring that its vision of providing seamless flight services on the domestic, regional and international routes was running according to plan.
The aircraft marked 5N-BUW and named Virginia Omeogo Adegoke (Nee Onyema) touched down at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos at about 4 a.m. (LT) on Tuesday. The fast growing airline had taken delivery of its 5th ERJ 145 weeks ago on Sunday, October 14.
A statement issued yesterday by the carrier’s corporate communications manager, Mr. Chris Iwarah, said the airline’s goal of guaranteeing seamless flight operations as well as connecting unserved and underserved routes was fast being fulfilled.
“We are delighted to announce the arrival of our sixth 50-seater Embraer 145 jet at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos at about 4 a.m. on Tuesday, November 27, 2018. The arrival of the aircraft has further strengthened our resolve to provide seamless flight services on the domestic, regional and international routes as well as extend the reach of our exceptional operations to many more unserved and underserved destinations under our no-city-left-behind project.
“Upon the arrival of our first Embraer 145 aircraft in February this year, we set another record in Nigeria’s aviation industry with the establishment of a subsidiary, Air Peace Hopper to organise our plan to democratise air transport and deliver exceptional flight services to unserved and underserved cities in Nigeria and the West coast of Africa.”
The airline added that “since we started this project, the pieces of feedback have been quite encouraging. Although there have been challenges, including delays mostly on account of circumstances bordering on safety and other factors beyond our control, we have kept reviewing our schedules and restrategising to ensure the best of flight services for our teeming loyal customers. This has greatly paid off and the delays reduced to the barest minimum.”
