The Nigerian Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, has moved to quell concerns regarding Air Peace, a local airline, following safety issues raised by the United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority (UKCAA).

In a statement released on Wednesday, Keyamo revealed that the Acting Director General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), Chris Najomo, briefed him on the situation.

The UKCAA had reported Air Peace to the NCAA over alleged non-compliance with safety regulations at London’s Gatwick Airport.

Air Peace, which launched its Lagos-Gatwick route in March 2024, has already assured passengers of its commitment to safety and a swift resolution to the concerns.

Minister Keyamo echoed this sentiment, stating, “I am informed that the safety issues raised have since been adequately addressed by the management of Air Peace and promptly closed to the satisfaction of the UK authorities.”

Keyamo emphasized the government’s unwavering trust in the safety practices of all Nigerian airlines operating internationally, including Air Peace.

He pledged continued support for these carriers as they strive for “world-class operational excellence.”

This statement serves as a reassurance to passengers and underscores the Nigerian government’s commitment to upholding safety standards in its domestic aviation industry.
