Air Peace has etched its name in the history books as the first indigenous airline to fly a high performance aircraft (Boeing 737-300) with an all-female crew.
The all-female crew flew the carrier’s four-sector flights on the Lagos-Abuja, Abuja-Owerri, Owerri-Abuja and Abuja-Lagos routes recently.
Sinmisola Ajibola became the airline’s first female captain and was assisted by Senior First Officer Quincy Owen.
Speaking afterwards, Sinmisola told Business Day that she had loved to fly as kid.
“Growing up with my dad, I saw the job every day and I picked interest in it. It was easy to follow my dreams with him,” she said.
“I trained in a school in Florida, USA and it was good to see things in a different perspective.
“Our schedule is such that when you are working, you are working and when you are off, you are off. I actually have a lot of time to do other things. The girl child should not be discouraged but continue to follow their dreams.”
