Air Peace Pilot Asks For Priority Landing After ‘fake’ Fire Alert

Air Peace officials confirmed that the aircraft operating flight P47193 landed safely

A false fire alarm caused panic on an Air Peace Port Harcourt-Lagos flight, leading the airline to request a priority landing.

Despite the false alarm, Air Peace officials confirmed that the aircraft operating flight P47193 landed safely, and passengers disembarked without incident.

The incident on the Air Peace flight comes in the wake of a recent runway skid involving another Nigerian carrier, Dana Air. While the circumstances surrounding each incident are distinct, they serve as sobering reminders of the inherent risks and complexities of air travel. From mechanical failures to adverse weather conditions, the aviation industry must constantly remain vigilant and proactive in mitigating potential risks and enhancing safety measures.

According to the airline’s statement, shortly before landing, the captain noticed a fire warning indicator in the cockpit.

“The pilots followed all safety preventive measures, and the fire indicator ceased. At 17:37 hrs, the captain immediately notified our operations control centre in Lagos.

“Upon landing, it was determined that the alarm was falsely triggered as there was no fire event. The aircraft landed safely, and all passengers disembarked normally,” the statement clarified.
