Fidelity Bank Nigeria Plc has commended the financial discipline of Nigeria’s major airline, Air Peace, restating its commitment to continuing to partner and collaborate with the airline.

Speaking during a recent ceremony to mark the arrival of Air Peace’s third Embraer 195-E2 aircraft in Abuja, the Managing Director, Fidelity Bank Plc, Mrs. Nneka Onyeali-Ikpe said when the Management of the airline disclosed its plans to buy 13 brand-new aircraft from Embraer, she thought it was a joke, knowing how much these aircraft could cost, but the bank worked with the airline to actualize that objective.


Onyeali-Ikpe said since Air Peace started doing business with the bank seven years ago, the airline has exhibited high fiscal discipline and prudence that has prompted the bank to go with the domestic carrier as far as it wants to go.


She assured that the bank would continue to collaborate with the airline and would work with it all the way, adding that the bank was very happy with the airline’s successes.


“It is a major success for a local player to have the level of financial discipline that this company has. So I commend you, and we will work with you all the way to any level that you want. I also want to thank the staff of Air Peace and celebrate with Mr. Allen Onyema; he is the strength behind all of these. We are here today to welcome the third aircraft. We have collaborated with Air Peace for so long, and I can tell you that with determination and commitment, the vision and purpose that there is nothing you cannot surmount,” she said.
