Lawmaker threatens legal action against Air Peace over alleged breach of contract

Abdullahi Aliyu Ahmed, a member of the House of Representatives for Musawa/Matazu Federal Constituency and Chairman of the House Committee on Interior, has threatened legal action against Air Peace Limited over an alleged breach of contract.

Ahmed claimed that the Nigerian airline downgraded his flight from business class to economy class after he had paid approximately N12 million for a trip from Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia.

Ahmed, accompanied by his family for lesser hajj, recounted that their scheduled departure from Kano airport on March 27, was delayed until the following day.

He expressed dissatisfaction with Air Peace’s frequent delays, flight disruptions, and abrupt schedule changes, stating that the airline changed his ticket to economy class without compensation despite paying for a business class ticket.

He said his intention to pursue legal action against Air Peace was to address the mistreatment experienced by passengers in the Nigerian aviation sector.

Another affected passenger, Ibrahim Shehu, urged the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) and relevant government bodies to intervene and recover funds paid to Air Peace by affected travellers.

There was no immediate comment from Air Peace as of the time of filing this report.

The spokesman of the airline, Stanley Olisa did not respond to Daily Trust’s enquiry.
