Air Peace, one of the nation’s commercial airlines, has won the “Company of the Year Award 2017” of Leadership Group.

Speaking at the Leadership 2017 Awards in Abuja, Chairman of Leadership Group Limited, Mr. Sam Nda-Isaiah said Air Peace and other award recipients were selected for the honour strictly on merit.

He hailed the carrier and other awardees for making significant contributions to the economic development of the country, urging them to sustain the high standards they were reputed for.

Meanwhile, Air Peace has dedicated the award to its customers, saying their huge support and patronage had been the pillars of its success since it commenced commercial flight operations more than three years ago.

The airline assured that the award, which was received on its behalf by its Chief Operating Officer, Mrs. Oluwatoyin Olajide would spur it to deepen the quality of its flight services.

“The award from Leadership Group”, the airline said in a statement issued by its Corporate Communications Manager, Mr. Chris Iwarah, “is another proof of the high quality of our contributions to the development of Nigeria’s economy and delivery of excellent flight services.”

A few weeks ago, the airline was recognized as the “National Carrier of Repute” award at the Annual Conference of the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR) in Umuahia, Abia State.
