Air Peace has bagged City People’s Airline of the Year Award for its outstanding performance despite the huge challenges faced by carriers in the country in 2016.
Receiving the award during the 20th edition of City People Awards for Excellence, Air Peace said it was further raising the quality of its services to guarantee air travellers the best flight experience in the country and beyond.
Speaking at the award ceremony held in Lagos, Air Peace Corporate Communications Manager, Mr. Chris Iwarah and Cabin Services Manager/Head of Commercial, Florence Opia, said the carrier had maintained an unbeatable record of on-time performance and safety of air travellers since it started commercial flight operations in 2014.
The City People award, the duo said, was a confirmation that the airline was providing exceptional flight services in the country.
The airline said the launch of its Accra-Ghana route on February 16 was the first step in projecting its capacity to deliver top-notch regional and international flight services.
Air Peace confirmed that it was finalising arrangements to service its planned long-haul routes, including Guangzhou-China, Mumbai, Dubai, Atlanta, London and South Africa, with the Boeing 777 aircraft it was acquiring.
The airline pledged not to let its huge customer base down, saying it had distinguished itself as Nigeria’s preferred airline because of the trust and support of the flying public.
