We’ve resolved AirPeace safety issues- Keyamo

By Innocent Raphael

The Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, on Wednesday, said issues concerning violations of safety rules by AirPeace have been resolved.

It would be recalled that few days ago, AirPeace was alleged of safety violations by United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority.

Keyamo reassured that the Nigerian flag carrier, AirPeace, enjoys full governmental support on its London route.

“My attention has been drawn to recent media publications citing some issues allegedly relating to possible safety violations at the Gatwick Airport by AirPeace Airlines raised by safety inspectors of the United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority,” Keyamo wrote.

He emphasized that AirPeace is backed by the Nigerian Government in its operations, saying that he had been reliably briefed by the Acting Director General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) on the matter.

“I am informed that the safety issues raised had since been adequately addressed by the management of AirPeace and promptly closed to the satisfaction of the UK authorities,” he added.

Keyamo reiterated the Federal Government’s confidence in the safety of all Nigerian flag carriers on international routes, including AirPeace, pledging continued support for their operational excellence.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the Federal Government of Nigeria has put its full weight and might behind all the local airlines designated on international routes in their endeavours in prosecuting these operations and shall provide all the necessary assistance and cooperation to ensure their success. AirPeace is no exception in this regard,” he concluded.
