The indigenous carrier, Air Peace, has reacted to Friday’s air mishap involving one of its fleets en route to Ilorin from Abuja, stating that details of the incident were exaggerated.
This was contained in a statement made available by the airline’s spokesperson, Stanley Olisa.
“The attention of Air Peace has been drawn to misleading online reports purporting that our Ilorin bound B737-500 aircraft with registration number 5N-BQR from Abuja, was involved in a crash in Ilorin, around 10 am on July 23, 2021
“For the records, no such thing happened. The reports misrepresented and exaggerated the facts. We can confirm that the aircraft in question landed safely, but had a minimal tire burst while taxing. This debunks all the mischievously headlined reports circulating online, which should be disregarded.
“Our aircraft neither crashed nor crash-landed in Ilorin or in any place for that matter. This kind of sensationalism is bad and was intended to cause panic in the minds of the flying public.
“It was duly reported to the authorities and passengers disembarked seamlessly. The tires have, however, been fixed and the aircraft is intact. We condemn the sensational publication of falsehood.
“Air Peace is committed to providing peaceful connectivity across cities and relentlessly observes the highest standards of safety in its operations,” the statement read.
