Limited FX, Others Impede Operation Says Air Peace Boss

The Chairman of Air Peace Nigeria Limited, Allen Onyema, says the absence of passenger transit facilities across international airports, and the inability of airlines to access foreign exchange from the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, are the significant challenges affecting domestic airlines operating on the international route.

Speaking to newsmen in Lagos, Mr Onyema also said Air Peace paid the CBN naira to obtain about $14 million for the maintenance of its 15 aircraft at maintenance facilities overseas, but that money has not been made available to the airline for six months now.

He also recalled that the federal government owed Air Peace about $10 million and also owed other Nigerian carriers that operated the Hajj service, noting that these debts impair the operations of the airline and others.

However, the Air Peace boss lamented that not having transit facilities at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, MMIA, Lagos and the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja has blunted the competitiveness of Nigerian airlines, and threatened their survival.
