West Africa’s leading airline, Air Peace, has been commended for maintaining high safety standards in all its flight operations.
Giving the commendation was the Head of Account Management, West and Central Africa, International Air Transport Association, IATA, Dr Samson Fatokun, while presenting the third IATA Operational Safety Audit, IOSA, Certificate to the Chairman of Air Peace, Mr Allen Onyema.
Fatokun congratulated the Air Peace team for achieving the rare feat, adding that many airlines had started the safety audit, but were unable to complete it.
He said, “It gives me joy to present this certificate today, because I know it’s the fruit of painstaking effort of your team.”
He added that scaling through this third safety audit process is a testament to Air Peace’s commitment to maintaining high safety standards in its operations.
Reiterating that safety is IATA’s number one priority, Fatokun asserted that for any airline to pass the safety audit, its safety compliance must be hundred percent, adding that Air Peace has met this prerequisite.
He added, “Many airlines are not able to achieve this because they don’t have the discipline and hard work which have consistently earned Air Peace this safety recognition. The certificate gives the airline a global recognition as a hundred percent safety-compliant airline.”
Responding, the Chief Executive of Air Peace, Allen Onyema affirmed that the IOSA certificate is something to be proud of, adding that Air Peace is becoming the emerging force in Africa’s aviation landscape.
He expressed gratitude to the IATA team and commended the entire Air Peace team for a successful safety audit.
He also assured that the airline would always align with global best practices and safety standards.
