Airlines operating in Nigeria may shut down operations in coming weeks over the frustration they face in the hands of the Nigeria Customs Service and the crash of the naira against the dollar, the Chairman, Air Peace, Allen Onyema, said on Thursday. Onyema, who spoke in Abuja while receiving the second Embraer 195-E2 aircraft of Air Peace, also revealed that about 20 airplanes of the airline that were flown abroad for maintenance had remained trapped in various countries due to the COVID-19 lockdown. On why the carriers were contemplating a nationwide shutdown, he said this was because the NCS was not complying fully with Federal Government’s law on waiver for airlines. On the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on aircraft maintenance, he said, “About 20 of our aircraft that were sent for maintenance are still in different parts of the world because they (countries) are experiencing various levels of lockdown. Commenting on the just received Embraer 195-E2 new aircraft, Onyema said it was the latest invention in commercial aviation. The Air Peace boss said the airplanes would be deployed on the domestic and regional routes
