Runway Accident: Air Peace Audited – NCAA

A technical audit of Air Peace and its fleet of aircraft with a view to ensuring the airline is in compliance with extant Nigeria Civil Aviation Regulations has been carried out.

This development was made public by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA, in a statement issued on Sunday (today) by its General Manager, Public Relations, Sam Adurogboye, who explained that the audit was to equally mitigate the reoccurrence of the July 23, 2019 incident which involved the airline’s aircraft on the runway of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos State, Nigeria.

According to Adurogboye,  “This technical audit was not limited to this recent incident. 

“The airline operational, technical and safety performance in the last 12 months were also scrutinised.

“It revealed that all the operational aircraft on the fleet of Air Peace Limited are airworthy. This is to assure the flying public that all the aircraft on the fleet of NCAA authorised Air Operators Certificate holders operating in Nigeria are airworthy.”

It would be recalled that on July 23, 2019, at about 10.28 am an Air Peace B737-300 aircraft with registration number 5N- BQO had an incident when it landed at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.

The NCAA however stated that its sister agency, the Accident Investigation Bureau, AIB, is currently investigating the incident to determine the immediate and remote causes as required by international standards stipulated in the International Civil Aviation Organisation Annex 13.
