AIR PEACE SHOULD BE PATRONIZED BY NIGERIANS NOT OUT OF PATRIOTISM BUT BECAUSE ITS MORE SENSIBLE, CONVENIENT

The President, Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association of Nigeria (AOPAN), Dr Alex Nwuba has asserted that Nigerians should be urged to fly Air Peace, not just out of patriotism but because its more sensible and convenient, in all ramifications.

Dr Nwuba made the assertion this Friday morning while speaking as a guest on Arise Tv’s Global Business Report on the issue of price war between Air Peace and foreign airlines, following the former’s crashing of prices on the Lagos-London route.

“There is no price war. What happened was that Air Peace crashed prices on that route by 60%.

“Nigerians should not be urged to patronize Air Peace because of patriotism, it should be on the basis of patriotism to their pockets.

“Air Peace is still cheaper and more convenient than British Airlines or Virgin Atlantic because it flies direct from Lagos to London, removing the inconvenience of passing through a secondary airport and spending 11 hours or even 22 hours, with all the inconvenience”

On the issue of the lawsuit being initiated by the family of late Abimbola Ogunbajo, who also died in the Herbert Wigwe fatal helicopter crash, Nwuba, while revealing that he was personally involved since Chizoba Wigwe (nee Nwuba) was his sister, he stated that his opinion was that they would wait for the US aviation agency to finish its investigation.

Dr Nwuba holds a Doctorate degree in Business Administration from the Swiss School of Business and Management, Geneva. He is also a Fellow of the Institute of Professional Managers and Administrators of Nigeria (IPMAN) and the Institute for Travel Professionals of Nigeria (ITPN).
