The management of Air Peace Limited has commended the federal government for the decision to close the Enugu international Airport in order to allow for a proper repair and maintenance of the airports runway.
The airline said in a statement signed by its chairman/CEO, Mr Allen Onyema that the runway has given them serious safety concerns.
Onyema explained in the statement that: “For the avoidance of doubt, Air Peace is fully and totally in support of this decision. Though the decision will affect the traveling public and, of course, the airline, we place the safety of the flying public, our crew and equipment above any commercial benefits.
The government should go all out to put everything in place, within the period of the closure, that would make the airport rank among the best international airports in the country. We plead with the Federal Government to make the airport a 24hr flight operations airport by improving the night landing infrastructure”.
He also applauded the federal government for the appointment of Capt. Yadudu as the managing director of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN.
Air Peace boss noted that his appointment is a testimony to the federal government’s resolve to put result driven persons at the helm of its agencies.
“We will not fail to thank the federal government for the appointment of Capt. Yadudu as the managing director of FAAN. His appointment is a testimony to the federal government’s resolve to put result driven persons at the helm of its agencies. Air Peace is not alone in this thought. Since his coming, airlines have started enjoying the services that would definitely improve the standards in the industry.
We thank President Mohammadu Buhari for his resolve to attend to the infrastructural decay in the industry,” Onyema concluded in the statement.
