UK Aviation Authority raises safety violation concern over Air Peace


The United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority has raised safety violation concerns over Nigerian carrier, Air Peace.


This is as the UK civil aviation authority wrote to Nigeria’s Civil Aviation Authority, stating that Air Peace has reportedly violated some aviation safety regulations.


The development came barely three months after the Nigerian carrier commenced the Lagos-London route, which led to a price cut war among air carriers.


Accordingly, two mandatory incident reports on Air Peace had been reportedly sent to the United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority.


The UK CAA, in turn, forwarded the complaints to the NCAA.


The CAA’s letter of complaint forwarded to NCAA was entitled; ”United Kingdom SAFA Ramp Inspection Report with reference number: CAA-UK, -2024-0217” and ”NATS Management System Safety Report.”


The NCAA has also written to Air Peace to clarify the issues.


The letter, with reference number: NCAA/DOLTS/APL/Vol.11/03624, was titled, “United Kingdom SAFA Ramp Inspection Report.


It was dated May 14, 2024, and signed by the NCAA General Manager of Operations, Capt. O.O. Lawani.


In the letter, the NCAA said the UK CAA had called its attention to the lack of operational approval of Electronic Flight Bag functions affecting the safe operation of the aircraft.


The captain of the flight admitted that an Electronic Flight Bag was being used for navigational purposes.


NCAA further noted that the CAA stated in its letter that there was “no mounting device for the use of EFB, no charging points or battery for backup.”


Meanwhile, the firm has yet to react to the development when filing this report.


On April 25, Air Peace commenced operations at London Gatwick from the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, under Nigeria’s Bilateral Air Services Agreement with the UK.
