The Consumer Protection Council (CPC) has congratulated AirPeace on its acquisition of the first Boeing 777 aircraft on Nigeria’s register, describing the feat as “another major milestone on its journey to becoming a major carrier.”
The Council referred to the aircraft as “a tried and tested equipment with a legendary reputation for comfort and versatility, as well as a remarkable record of safety.”
In a congratulatory message signed by the Council’s Director General, Babatunde Irukera, he noted that “AirPeace’s acquisition of this world class aircraft, and how it has grown both its fleet and routes in an almost meteoric manner is a testament to the possibilities in the Nigerian market, and the abiding custom of our consumers.”
While welcoming this historic development, he said the Council “again encourages AirPeace to renew and redouble its commitment to the best possible service and deference to consumers”, noting that “therein only lies the key to unlocking further, and enduring growth”. According to Irukera, “Nigerian consumers are as sophisticated, as they are loyal. They deserve the best attention and care in exchange for their patronage, and reward for their loyalty.
“The aviation industry remains one of the most vital catalysts for economic growth and shared prosperity. Reinforcing confidence in safety and institutionalizing innovative products and respectful customer service are the fundamentals for industry expansion and perpetuation”, he emphasised.
The director general further observed that “the Council recognizes that fleet renewal is key to accomplishing these objectives and commends the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) for the dynamism that has resulted in this landmark in our aviation development. Maintaining FAA CAT-1, highest level of IOSA certification for both our regulatory processes and domestic airlines are significant factors for safety, security and consumer satisfaction. We urge the NCAA to ensure these.”
