Nigerian leading airline, Air Peace, has offered to fly back Nigerians caught in the war situation in Sudan.
Allen Onyeama, the owner of Air Peace made this announcement/ offer on Monday while reacting to the crisis situation in Sudan, where thousands of Nigerian students are trapped in the country.
Onyeama said the offer would be possible if the Nigerian government can move the affected Nigerians to a safe and secure airport in any of countries close to the Sudan.
He added that it would be a privilege and honor of tremendous pride that we will be out there to give every Nigerian stranded in Sudan a sense of pride and oneness in the country.
The crisis in Sudan had resulted in the closure of the airport in Khartoum with planes destroyed on the airport tarmac.
The Nigerian government has been struggling with how to deal with the evacuation issue, and had stated through the Foreign Minster that the only safe route out of Sudan was to go by road.
Now Air Peace is offering to evacuate the affected Nigerians free of charge back to Nigeria.
Recall that Air Peace had also been involved in similar evacuation exercises of Nigerians from South Africa in 2019 during the xenophobic attacks on foreigners in South Africa. This was also done free of charge.
Air Peace is the biggest private airline in Nigeria with a fleet size of 31 and flights to more than 20 global locations.
