AHEAD of the six-week closure of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja starting midnight; Air Peace has deployed its staff to and assured air travellers of smooth flight operations in and out of the Kaduna International Airport of top-notch services during the Abuja shutdown.
A statement issued by the airline’s Corporate Communications Manager, Mr. Chris Iwarah said the carrier had already deployed its staff to the Kaduna International Airport in readiness for diversion of Abuja-bound flights to the facility from March 8.
The Federal Government said it would shut down the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja for six weeks beginning from midnight on March 7. The closure, the government explained, would enable its contractors fix the bad portions of the airport’s runway.
The government designated the Kaduna airport as alternate facility to handle flights into and out of Abuja during the closure of the airport.
Iwarah assured that Air Peace was fully prepared to operate flights into and out of the Kaduna airport during the shutdown of the Abuja facility.
He confirmed that the airline would operate flights from Lagos, Port Harcourt, Enugu, Benin, Calabar, Owerri and Sokoto into and out of Kaduna.
Iwarah urged air travellers to frequently visit the airline’s website, www.flyairpeace.com and social media platforms to get daily information on its flight operations during the closure of the Abuja airport.
The airline’s staff, he added, would be available at all its offices to assist air travellers and provide up-to-date information on the Kaduna flight operations.
