IATA issues Air Peace third safety certification
The International Air Transport Association has issued domestic airline, Air Peace, with the third Operational Safety Audit otherwise known as IOSA. The airline said, with the certification, the tone for the aviation sector in Nigeria this year had been set.
This development, according to the airline, is coming on the heels of its announcement of flight operations to Ibadan from Abuja, Kano and Owerri.
The Chief Operating Officer, Air Peace, Mrs Toyin Olajide, said the airline set a record when it obtained its first IOSA barely two years into its operations and was subsequently inducted as a member of IATA.
Olajide said the third certification was a confirmation of the airline’s adherence to safety standards in line with global best practices.
“The exercise this time round was tougher than what obtained in the previous years but we sailed through every phase of the certification process due to our unwavering drive to keep raising the bar in our operations,” she said.
She said the flying public should be assured of the airline’s resolve to continue to comply with best safety standards and an expanded route network this year.
“Air Peace has attained an enviable position as West Africa’s leading airline and will continue to raise the bar in flight services, while ensuring a 100 per cent compliance with all safety codes as required by the industry regulatory bodies,” she added.
The Director of Audit Programmes, IATA, Catalin Cotrut, while congratulating Air Peace on the successful completion of the audit, charged the airline on standard reporting responsibilities in accordance with the IOSA Programme Manual, Section 7.7.1.
