UK CAA Raises Safety Concerns Over Air Peace Operations

The United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority (UK CAA) has flagged safety violations by Air Peace, just three months after the Nigerian airline launched its Lagos-London route. The UK CAA sent two mandatory occurrence reports to Nigeria’s Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), raising issues about the airline’s operations.

In a letter titled “United Kingdom SAFA Ramp Inspection Report,” the UK CAA pointed out the unauthorized use of an Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) for navigation, lack of proper mounting devices, and inadequate charging points.

The NCAA has responded by requesting clarification from Air Peace. Dated May 14, 2024, and signed by NCAA General Manager of Operations, Capt. O.O. Lawani, the letter emphasizes the need for Air Peace to address these concerns promptly.

This scrutiny comes shortly after Air Peace began its flights to London Gatwick under the Bilateral Air Services Agreement between Nigeria and the UK. Attempts to reach Air Peace spokesperson Stanley Olisa for comments were unsuccessful.
