Air Peace Airline’s plan to evacuate Nigerians in South Africa
from September 6, 2019, suffered a major setback as most of those
interested in returning home, have expired passports.
Mr Allen Onyema, the Chairman of Air Peace, made the revelation in Lagos. “The Air Peace flight to South Africa will take off from the Lagos Airport and also return to Lagos. .
As earlier stated, the take off could be Sept 9 or Sept 10. This is because the Nigerians in South Africa have to obtain travel certificates because many of them do not have travel documents and their passports have expired,” he added.
The airline with the support of the Federal Government planned to begin evacuating Nigerians from South Africa on Sept. 6, after the xenophobic attacks against Nigerians and other foreign nationals living in that country.
