Air Peace has announced plans to commence flight into Jamaica in December.
It would also commence regional flights into Accra, Banjul, Freetown, Dakar, Monrovia, Dubai and Johannesburg in December.
The airline’s Chief Operating Officer, Mrs. Toyin Olajide, who disclosed this lamented that the COVID-19 pandemic impacted on the company’s operations negatively.
She said, “COVID-19 affected airlines everywhere in different ways. In our case, we had several aircraft out on C-check maintenance abroad before the pandemic.
“These aircraft were supposed to have since come back one after another but because of lockdown in those countries since February, the maintenance facilities shut down, too.
“The Nigerian C-check regime is driven by the calendar, which implies that every aircraft has a timeframe they must go for mandatory checks, usually between 18-24 months.”
Olajide however, noted that the serviced planes would be back next week, while three brand new aircraft would be ready in December.
