Air Peace CEO, Onyema to chair 22nd LAAC Seminar

CHAIRMAN of Air Peace Barr. Allen Onyema, would moderate affairs at the forthcoming League of Airport and Aviation Correspondents (LAAC) 22nd Annual Seminar scheduled to hold in Lagos.

The seminar with theme: ‘Financing Aviation Development Through Private Sector Partnerships,’ would be held on July 19, 2018 at the Sheraton Hotels and Towers, Lagos.

Other major players in the global aviation industry would also be in attendance and would present various papers on how to move the Nigerian aviation industry forward.

Some of the topics slated for discussion include; ‘Partnerships as Key to Survival of Local Airlines in Nigeria,’ ‘Funding Perspectives of Aviation Security in Nigeria,’ ‘Federal/State Government Partnership in Air Navigational Development and ‘Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) Financing.’

Mr. Chris Iwarah, spokesman for Air Peace, said that the annual seminar would offer the players in the sector a platform to discuss elaborately on the challenges and prospects in the Nigerian aviation industry in particular and Africa as a whole.

Onyema started Air Peace in 2014 with just seven aircraft, which has grown to 24 within the last four years and a dynamic expansion plan.

The airline is the fastest growing carrier in the entire West and Central Africa Region, connecting major cities in Nigeria, West Africa while plans have reached an advanced stage to expand its wings to United States, United Kingdom, South Africa and other long haul routes.

The leadership of LAAC and its Seminar Committee said that the league was happy to have Onyema as the chairman of the seminar.

“No doubt, Onyema is one of the major players in the Nigerian aviation industry and beyond. He will bring his wealth of experience to the table as the Chairman of the seminar. We are glad to have someone of his caliber chair our seminar,” the league said.

“However, we are also expecting resources persons from outside the country to deliver papers at the seminar.”
