On resumption of flight operations, Air Peace airline will downsize it’s operations and some staff may be asked to proceed on leave until flight services increased. This is just as the airline will also stop in flight catering services.
This was disclosed yesterday by the Executive Chairman of the airline, Barrister Allen Onyema while speaking during a webinar organized by Aelex partners with the theme: “Survival Strategies for Nigerian Airlines”.
According to Onyema , the airline took these decisions in order to cut cost due to the impact of the COVID-19 on the Industry, adding that some staff maybe asked to stay home until the situation improves.
He also said few of the airline’s aircraft would be deployed at resumption as well as reduction in the number of flights.
The Air Peace boss said : “Out of our 13 Boeing 737 in Airpeace aircraft, we are only going to deploy 4 of them, out of our 8 ERJ’s, we are going to deploy only 6 because those ones are just 50 seater, so we will manage with those ones.”
“From 100 flights per day, Airpeace is going down to 42 flights, so going to Abuja will no longer be every hour, do downsizing of your operations is good in cutting cost, so, we are downsizing our operations to almost about 60%, we are going to do about 40% of our operations and even in that 40%, we are not going to carry 40% of the passengers we use to carry before.”
“Passenger figures are not going to be the same again like what it use to be years back, everything has changed, so going into operations, a new set of regulations will emerge.”
With the reduction in the number of flights, he said few staff would be required for the operations. He however emphasized that Airpeace was not sacking any staff, adding that when flight increases more staff would be brought in.
“Even we at Airpeace, we are going to down size, I expect every airline to down size because the passengers are not going to be there in the beginning, it will take time, so if you push out all your planes, you have yourself to blame.”
