In his remarks, the Chairman/Chief Executive Officer, Air Peace, Mr Allen Onyema, while presenting Ajibola for decoration, said he was proud of her achievement and urged the new captain to sustain her outstanding performance in and out of the cockpit.

Onyema rained accolades to the airline’s pilots for displaying excellence in the cockpit, as well as standing tall among their counterparts, globally and disclosed that Air Peace caused a revolution in the nation’s aviation industry in the area of pilots’ benefits.

While revealing that “The airline currently has eight female pilots in its workforce,” he noted further that women occupy most of the top positions in Air Peace and also run four of the carrier’s stations.
