Nigeria’s fastest growing airline, Air Peace is currently operating its two-brand new Embraer 195-E2 aircraft on test flights preparatory for deployment into service.
Stanley Olisa the image maker of the airline who made this revelation on Friday said that one of the aircraft was flown empty from Lagos to Owerri, Abuja and Port Harcourt for familiarisation on Thursday.
The management of Air Peace who has received the first of 13 brand-new E195 in Abuja, said the aircraft will create 8000 jobs. Olisa also stated that test flights to other destinations would continue, adding that in no time, the planes would commence scheduled flights, offering a superior travel experience to customers.
He informed that the third brand-new E195-E2 aircraft would be coming in very soon adding that the airline’s fleet expansion is driven by management commitment to satisfy the air travel needs of Nigerians.
The operation of test flights by newly acquired aircraft is a regulatory requirement that must be met before the aircraft is deployed for regular scheduled operations. Recall that Air Peace took delivery of the two brand-new ultramodern 124 seat capacity Embraer 195-E2 aircraft in January and March this year, with 11 more slated for delivery subsequently.
