Domestic carrier, Air Peace, has concluded arrangements to commence the lucrative Dubai, Atlanta, London routes as a was to expand its destinations globally.

Chairman/Chief Executive Officer, Chief Allen Onyema, gave the assurance, when he was conferred with the award of “Aviation Man of the Year 2016” by ATQnews and Akwaaba African Travel Market at the 2017 Port Harcourt Bantaba.

Speaking at the event held recently, Onyema said Air Peace has distinguished itself in the Nigerian aviation industry with its unrivalled on-time performance, safety and maintenance record.

The CEO further stated that Air Peace which has added a Friday evening flight to its daily Lagos-Accra-Lagos route, would make Enugu the base of its Gwangzhou-China operations.

He pledged continuous seamless air travel with its project to connect more local, regional and international destinations with plans to strengthen its fleet with a Boeing 777 aircraft in its preparation to commence Guangzhou-China, Dubai, Mumbai, Atlanta, London and other long-haul routes.

Responding to a question on the ownership of the airline, the Air Peace boss dismissed insinuations that a former First Lady fondly referred to as “Mama Peace” had an interest in the carrier.

Onyema, who was represented by the airline’s corporate communications manager, Mr. Chris Iwarah, said Air Peace symbolized the effort of his organization, the Foundation for Ethnic Harmony in Nigeria (FEHN) to promote peace in the country through the creation of gainful employment for thousands of converted militant agitators and other jobless Nigerians.

He insisted that efforts to set up the airline predated Nigeria’s return to democracy in 1999. Onyema explained that he was advised to set up an airline because of its capacity to create massive job opportunities for members of the society.

The Air Peace boss expressed gratitude to the organizers of the award for recognizing his efforts to transform air travel experience in Nigeria and beyond, pledging to support the group in its programmes.

Also speaking, organizer of Port Harcourt Bantaba, Mr. Ikechi Uko said Onyema was chosen as the “Aviation Man of the Year 2016” for positioning Air Peace as Nigeria’s preferred airline and for expanding to Accra, Ghana.
