Air Peace over the weekend successfully evacuated over 300 Nigerians
from different countries in Asia using its B777 aircraft; 5N-BWI and
5N-BE.The two flights according to the Airline, returned safely to Abuja and
Lagos airports on the night of 11th July, evacuating over 300 stranded
Nigerians from Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia in one flight, while
the second flight brought in some stranded Nigerians in India and over
200 Indians working in Nigeria.

The airline had airlifted 250 Indians from Nigeria in one of the many
evacuation flights it carried out to the world’s second most populated
Country on July 10, 2020.

The stranded Nigerians from Malaysia and Thailand, who had lost hope
of being evacuated, commended Air Peace for coming to their rescue at
an affordable fare, noting that no airline in the world outside that
owned by Nigerians would have airlifted them at that fare.The excited passengers were full of praises for the airline and the
federal government of Nigeria for its support.

Chief Operating Officer of the airline, Mrs. Toyin Olajide, when
contacted, thanked the federal government of Nigeria for its support
and assured that with such continued support, Air Peace, and indeed,
other Nigerian carriers would be able to stand shoulder to shoulder
with other notable carriers in the world.

She also thanked the Minister of Aviation, Sen. Hadi Sirika, and
Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Geoffrey Onyeama, for the support
they have given the Airline and the succour they have given Nigerians
living abroad by providing them the opportunity to return home.

She said the fact that foreign governments have started using Air
Peace to evacuate their nationals is an evidence of what the airline
can do and other Nigerian carriers subjected to the stringent
regulatory conditions by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA),
adding that Air Peace is efficiently and effectively managed and could
compete with any other carrier globally.Olajide also disclosed that besides bringing Nigerians back from the
UK, India, China, Turkey, Kenya, Uganda and other countries the
airline has equally been contracted by governments of Israel, China,
India and now Malaysia to evacuate their citizens.
