An Air Peace plane narrowly escaped accident on Saturday due to a bird strike close to Abuja airport.

According to the airline, the Asaba-Abuja flight had to make emergency landing to avert tragedy.

Air Peace, in a terse statement, sighted by PlatinumPost, said the incident disrupted some of its other flight schedules, and appealed for understanding.

“This is to inform the flying public and our esteemed customers

that our Asaba-Abuja flight- P47866- had a bird strike upon

landing in Abuja today, Saturday, April 8, 2023.

The aircraft, with Registration Number ES-SAZ, landed safely and

passengers disembarked normally.

“While we deeply empathise with passengers whose flights have

been consequently affected by this unforeseen development,

arrangement was made for another aircraft to operate Abuja-

Asaba, Asaba-Lagos and other flights on that rotation.

” Be assured of our strict compliance with established safety

standards,” the statement signed by the airline management read.
