Nigeria’s leading airline, Air Peace today resumed scheduled domestic flight services assuring that it has put in place reliable measures to protect both passengers and staff pre-flight, in-flight and post-flight.
The Airline resumed regular domestic flight services in the wake of the Federal Government’s directive to re-open Lagos and Abuja airports for flight operations.
In a statement released to journalists, the airline’s Spokesperson, Stanley Olisa, urged its customers to embrace online booking and check-in, employing its user-friendly Mobile App, as a means of minimizing physical contact.
The airline he explained has put in place reliable measures to protect both passengers and staff pre-flight, in-flight and post-flight, adding that the flying public need not worry but to comply with all health protocols.
Olisa said that the airline has thoroughly disinfected all its aircraft and the flight crew is current as well as COVID-19 conscious.
“If you’ve been following our social media platforms, you will have seen robust sensitization content in form of videos showing what is expected of our passengers in this COVID-19 dispensation”, Olisa stated.
He stressed that passengers must always wear their face masks before entering the airport terminal and onboard, and are expected to submit themselves for temperature checks before boarding.
According to him, “If your temperature reads above 37 degrees, you’ll be denied boarding. No loitering on the aisle of the aircraft. Hands must be sanitized and no more meals on board. This is to reduce crew-passenger contact. Flying will be somewhat different but we can guarantee your safety”.
Olisa, who implored the flying public to download the Air Peace Mobile App for seamless booking and check-in, asserted that all the airline’s aircraft are in perfect shape as multiple shakedown flights have been conducted for safety reassurance. He added that the airline has also been operating a series of ‘special’ flights, which is an indication of aircraft airworthiness.
