Speaking at the event, the Chairman of Air Peace, Allen Onyema, said when it came to flight delays and cancellations, so many things were involved, which many people did not know.

He noted that no airline in the world would want to delay flights because of the cost implications.

“How would I just wake up and want to delay my flight when I know I am going to incur a heavy cost?”

Further speaking, Onyema said Nigerian airlines were operating in a very hostile environment with limited infrastructure.

“The airlines are at the mercy of everybody. The owners of airlines in Nigeria are patriotic because it is not profitable. They are doing it as a service to Nigeria and should be applauded, not demonized.
