Air Peace Debunks Alleged Safety Violations In The UK

Air Peace has dismissed reports of alleged safety breaches in the United Kingdom, stating that ramp inspection issues were resolved with the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

The Lead, Corporate Communications of the airline, Mr Stanley Olisa, dismissed the allegation in a statement made available to newsmen on Monday May 20, 2024 in Lagos.
In response to a publication alleging safety concerns, Olisa confirmed the UK CAA’s letter to the NCAA, but said the issues raised had since been resolved.
He said the publication was false and was meant to create fears and doubts in the minds of the flying public.
According to him, since Air Peace’s inaugural flight to the UK, the airline has been subjected to rigorous scrutiny by relevant authorities.
He said the UK CAA had on April 7 requested clarification on the airline’s use of the Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) and some other concerns, which were immediately addressed and settled.

“It is, therefore, wrong to say that the airline did not have approval for EFB. Air Peace received approval from the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), and all our Boeing 777 aircraft are certified to operate with EFBs.
“Regarding the claim that our B777 aircraft lack iPad mounts and charging ports in the flight deck, this is incorrect.
“All B777 aircraft are equipped with charging ports in the cockpit, and we ensure that all our B777 aircraft have iPad mounts,” Olisa said.

He also said an issue raised by the UK CAA was the location of the airline’s cockpit library on the B777, adding that the B777 designated two locations for storing manuals and books – one behind the captain and one under the jumpseat.
Olisa said during the inspection, the books were stored under the jumpseat, as it was commonly practised.
“We understand the inspector’s preference for the books to be placed behind the captain and have ensured this preference is accommodated for all operations going forward.
“There was also a concern about the captain’s choice of runway exit after landing. Instead of exiting at the middle runway exit, the captain, out of his professional discretion, opted to exit at the end of the runway.
“This may have delayed the arrival of another aircraft. We acknowledge this deviation and have addressed the matter with the captain, to ensure adherence to preferred exit procedures in the future.

“Ramp inspection is a normal procedure carried out by aviation authorities globally, and the UK CAA did the right thing by notifying the NCAA of the outcome of their inspection,” he said.
Olisa, however, said the airline’s management was shocked to see several media publications with exaggerated and sensationalised accounts of this matter that were closed with the authorities over a month ago.

He restated Air Peace’s commitment to safety, employing robust operational mechanisms, to guarantee full compliance always, as it continued pursuit of operational excellence and unwavering commitment to the safety and security of passengers

  1. This is why I said I won't take the UK words for it. They're out to frustrate Air Peace but they went for the wrong man. Allen came well prepared.

    1. Teejay,

      You didn't write this when those 2 ignorant social media commentators maligned Nigeria and Nigerians.

  2. I hope they get it right 💯
    Healthy competition is good.

  3. Why’s this very laudable achievement pissing some people off?

    1. 2 reasons.

      1.They are competition.
      2.They gave Harry and Meghan a ride.

  4. I'm happy they're being rigorously scrutinized for safety purposes. If not them go cut corners anyhow.

    1. lies....civil aviation is a very regulated industry...there are some corners you cannot cut anyhow in Aviation...some of the issues addressed are best practices not necessarily bad in themselves...the ground handlers at Gatwick are doing everything to frustrate their operations as noticed by passengers at the terminal before their inaugural flight...if they had their way I am sure they will not be at Gatwick but at all at all naim bad....I always take my flights through Heathrow which is more convenient for me but as per our own we go dey manage air peace for Gatwick

    2. So flight manual storage is a safety concern when they are following the airline manufacturer's designation? None of the things stated up there is a life threatening issue. Not one of them, if they addressed everything that is in the report.
