Air Peace 25 Flies Empty Planes to Abuja, Port Harcourt and Back to Lagos
Following the Federal Government Thursday declaration that it would announce a date for the reopening of the nation’s airspace next week, Air Peace has flown 25 empty planes to the nation’s capital.
Stanley Olisa, the airline spokesperson, disclosed on Thursday.
He said, “All the aircraft took to the skies flying to Abuja, Port Harcourt and back to Lagos without passengers.”
According to Olisa, the initiative is one of the strategies adopted by the airline to ensure the safety of both passengers and crew when flight operations finally commence.
Speaking on the airline readiness, Olisa said “We have been operating ‘special flights’ to local and international destinations, and we have more of such flights in the works.
“This accentuates our preparedness for operation restart as our pilots, cabin crew and engineers have been hands-on and are current. So, we are 100 per cent ready to resume.”
However, it is uncertain if the Federal Government is going to finally open the airspace for commercial flight operations given the rising number of COVID-19 new cases.
