Lagos-London Route: Air Peace Violating Aviation Safety Rules-UK CAA
Yinka Olajoyetan, Lagos 
The United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority (UK CAA) has revealed that Nigerian carrier, Air Peace is currently running it’s Lagos-London Route despite safety breaches.
This was contained in a letter to the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) by the UK CAA, barely three months after the Nigerian carrier commenced the Lagos-London route.
The UK CAA said it received two mandatory incident reports on Air Peace, which it forwarded to the NCAA.
The UK CAA’s letter of complaint forwarded to NCAA was entitled; ”United Kingdom SAFA Ramp Inspection Report with reference number: CAA-UK, -2024-0217” and ”NATS Management System Safety Report.”
The NCAA has also written to Air Peace to clarify the issues.
The letter, with reference number: NCAA/DOLTS/APL/Vol.11/03624, was titled, “United Kingdom SAFA Ramp Inspection Report.
It was dated May 14, 2024, and signed by the NCAA General Manager of Operations, Capt. O.O. Lawani.
In the letter, the NCAA said the UK CAA had called its attention to the lack of operational approval of Electronic Flight Bag functions affecting the safe operation of the aircraft.
The captain of the flight admitted that an Electronic Flight Bag was being used for navigational purposes.
NCAA further noted that the UK CAA stated in its letter that there was “no mounting device for the use of EFB, no charging points or battery for backup.”
Recall that Air Peace commenced operations at London Gatwick from the Murtala Muhammed International Airport on April 25th, 2024, under Nigeria’s Bilateral Air Services Agreement with the UK
