Air Peace Airlines say welfare package for staff and observance of routine checks and maintenance of aircraft in its fleet are its core values.
In a statement, the airline explained that the success and client loyalty recorded by Air-Peace within its short period of existence are traceable to those values.
The statement noted that immediately the Chairman of the airline, Mr. Allen Onyema, was granted the Air Operators Certificate (AOC) in September, last year, he set out the major driving principles that have been guiding Air-Peace.
“Part of these critical issues that give us the edge is the large premium we place on staff welfare. Next to that is that, aircraft must be put in top shape to meet all safety standards as well as avoid inconveniences to passengers caused by delays and cancellation of flights. Above all we ensure that only good aircraft are procured for our operations,” the statement added.
While dismissing the allegation that it was poaching the pilots of other airlines, Air-Peace said that if any pilot is poached, it makes a statement about the degree of job satisfaction and welfare it enjoys, stressing that it is a standard industry practice for staff to apply for employment in firms where consideration for job security, welfare and capacity enhancement are assured.
