Nigeria’s aviation industry recorded another feat when Air Peace operated first all-female flights from Lagos to Abuja, Owerri, Imo state and back to Lagos. Hundreds of airline passengers, government officials and aviation regulators celebrated the first all-female crew comprising Capt. Sinmisola Ajibola, Senior First Officer Quincy Owen, SEP Instructor Rosemary Uagbor, Cabin Executive Chidimma Chimezie and Cabin Executive Opakirite George.

The all-female flight, which took off from Lagos, was operated days after Air Peace produced its first female Captain, Sinmisola Ajibola.

The flights, the airline said, were in honour of Sinmisola and to promote gender equality in the nation’s aviation industry and project Nigerian women as capable of standing tall among both their male and female counterparts across the world.

The development is coming days after Air Peace gave command to Sinmisola Ajibola, who made history as the airline’s first female captain and was decorated with her new rank by the airline on Monday, June 25.
