Job Creation:

In a poignant moment, Dr. Onyema reaffirmed Air Peace’s founding mission of job creation and economic empowerment for Nigerians. He stressed that Air Peace was not established solely for profit but to catalyze job opportunities and meaningfully contribute to the nation’s economic development through the aviation sector. “Air Peace was not borne out of the intent to profiteer but to create jobs. Air Peace was founded not out of a desire for more money but from a conviction that running an airline would create job opportunities. That was why we went into aviation”, he remarked.

The partnership between both organisations serves as a testament to the potential of indigenous businesses in Nigeria and the importance of collaborative efforts in driving progress and innovation across various sectors. Together, they exemplify the spirit of enterprise and determination that defines the Nigerian business landscape.
