Following the recent accident involving Ethiopian Airlines Boeing B737 MAX 8, the management of Air Peace Airline has clarified on its firm order for 10 of the same aircraft type .
The Airline said it is yet to take delivery of the aircraft as it is still at the design and configuration stage of the order.
The airline said the clarification has become necessary in view of numerous calls and enquiries on our response to the incidents involving the B737 Max 8 aircraft.
Air Peace in a statement signed by Chris Iwarah, corporate communications manager stated that: “Although it is premature to comment on the incidents, we wish to assure members of the flying public that we are closely following and monitoring developments on the issue as an airline that prioritises the safety and well-being of our customers.
Iwarah continued that in the statement that: “While we keep engaging with our partners in this regard, we repose implicit confidence in Boeing and aviation authorities to capably and satisfactorily address all the issues if at the conclusion of ongoing investigations it is discovered that the challenge is with the B737 Max 8.
We urge members of the flying public to continue to choose Air Peace as their preferred airline and trust us to always act in their best interest”.
