Air Peace Clarifies The Public On B737 Max 8 Order
The Management of Air Peace Airline has said that the order of ten brand new Boeing 737 MAX 8 by the airline has not been delivered.
In a statement made available to News Dot Africa on Monday March 11, 2019, the Corporate Communications Manager, Chris Iwarah stated that the airline 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.” he said.
Mr Iwara noted that although it is premature to comment on the incidents, members of the flying public needed to be assured of their safety.
He said the airline is closely following and monitoring developments on the issue as an airline that prioritises the safety and well-being of 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” Chris Iwara concluded.
So far Lion Air and Ethiopian Air crashed recently with the B737 Max 8 which raised public concern on the Boeing brand.
