Reflecting on the overwhelming demand, Onyema remarked, “At the end of the day, Air Peace will be owning over 60 aircraft…even that inaugural flight got sold out within days and even up to September.”

Despite the success, he acknowledged the recent challenges faced by the airline.

Onyema highlighted the financial hurdles encountered, citing Gatwick Airport’s demand for a security deposit exceeding £2 million before allowing operations to commence.

He questioned the fairness of such requirements compared to other airlines, emphasizing negotiations to reach a feasible arrangement.
