Following the Ethiopian Airline crash of Sunday involving a Boeing 737 Max-8 which claimed 157 lives, the Management of Air Peace Airline has clarified the public on the status of its order for 10 of same aircraft.
In a statement made available to The Sight News on Monday, the Air Peace Airline Corporate Communications Manager, Chris Iwarah noted that it is yet to take delivery of the 10 brand new B737 Max 8 aircraft ordered.
According to Iwarah, “The Management of Air Peace Airline has thought it imperative to clarify that Air Peace recently placed a firm order for 10 brand new Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft.
“We are, however, yet to take delivery of the aircraft as we are still at the design and configuration stage of the order”.
Air Peace, however stressed that the clarification has become necessary in view of numerous calls and enquiries on its response to the incidents involving the B737 Max 8 aircraft.
“Although it is premature to comment on the incidents, we wish to assure members of the flying public that we are closely following and monitoring developments on the issue as an airline that prioritizes the safety and well-being of our customers.
“While we keep engaging with our partners in this regard, we repose implicit confidence in Boeing and aviation authorities to capably and satisfactorily address all the issues if at the conclusion of ongoing investigations it is discovered that the challenge is with the B737 Max 8”, Air Peace remarked.
The Airline urged members of the flying public to continue to choose Air Peace as their preferred airline and trust the Airline to always act in their best interest.
