THE Management of Air Peace Airline has declared that it was yet to take delivery of the ten Boeing737 Max 8 aircraft it ordered for last year.
Reacting to the crash involving the aircraft type in the fleet of Ethiopian Airline which crashed few minutes after takeoff from Bole International Airport, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on Sunday killing 157 people on board, the management of the airline said there was no cause for alarm as in view of the various questions the management has been receiving since the accident occurred.
According to the image maker of the airline, Chris Iwarah: “The management of Air Peace 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.
“This clarification has become necessary in view of numerous calls and enquiries on our 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 prioritises 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.
“We urge members of the flying public to continue to choose Air Peace as their preferred airline and trust us to always act in their best interest.”
