Air Peace has introduced a priority boarding policy for Nigeria’s military personnel, both serving and retired, to honour them for the huge sacrifices they make for the nation.
Air Peace Honours Military With Priority Boarding
Air Peace Chief Executive Officer, Allen Onyema, who disclosed this in a statement on Friday, said the airline holds the contributions of the military in securing Nigeria and defending its territory from external aggression in high esteem.
Onyema said the new policy of boarding military personnel first before other passengers had commenced on Wednesday, January 12, 2022, and has become a permanent practice in all Air Peace stations.
He said, “This priority boarding policy we are introducing is our own way of appreciating and recognising the noble and patriotic efforts of the officers and men of Nigeria’s Armed Forces, for the risks they take and all the sacrifices they make in defending the territorial integrity of this country. Our ground staff have also been enjoined to appreciate them.
Onyema urged other passengers to show understanding and cooperate with the airline’s ground personnel to ensure a seamless implementation of the new policy and called on other applicable businesses to adopt a similar policy in honour of the Nigerian military.
