Air Peace will reinstate many of the pilots sacked recently after an intervention by the Federal Government, James Odaudu, spokesperson of the Ministry of Aviation, has said.
He said Allen Onyema has agreed verbally after an appeal by Hadi Sirika, the aviation minister.
On his part, Onyema expressed his sadness and disappointment over what he called the ingratitude of some of the airline’s pilots despite everything done to make them comfortable on their jobs. He recalled how Air Peace had trained over 80 pilots and an equal number of aircraft engineers, giving its staff the best remuneration package within the sector only for them to disappoint at a time their understanding was needed.
Sirika, in his remark, called for the understanding of everyone, especially the labour unions as regards the prevailing situation in the aviation industry.
