ABUJA — The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has allocated six slots to Air Peace, both at the Dubai and Sharjah airports.
The development was announced by James Odaudu, director, public affairs, ministry of aviation on Tuesday.
According to him, the move was part of the resolution to the diplomatic row between the two nations.
He noted that the UAE aviation authorities allocated six slots to the Nigerian carrier as part of the diplomatic resolution.
“It is confirmed. That was part of the resolution.
“They have approved six slots for Air Peace flight. Both in Dubai and Sharjah airports,” he said.
Air Peace had requested a slot of three weekly flights from Nigeria to Sharjah Airport in UAE, but only one was granted.
The UAE’s GCAA blamed the airline for pulling out of Sharjah Airport and “so should not expect to retain its flight frequency there” — a claim Air Peace has denied.
