Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown. That Shakespearean quote seems to perfectly fit the lot of city lawyer and aviation mogul, Allen Onyema. For the Air Peace boss, he has been able to stand tall despite all odds pitted against him —particularly since his venture into aviation business. He has remained unshaken even when things are difficult and seem almost impossible to actualise. To the entrepreneur par excellence, he has remained relevant based on his wonted tenacity and doggedness.
Since he joined the aviation sector nearly a decade ago, Onyema has always aimed for the best. Leveraging on his intelligence in the business, the Anambra State-born Onyema has revolutionised air travel and reinvigorated the Nigerian aviation industry. This has today made him a towering figure in West Africa’s aviation sector.
In recent years, the cosmopolitan business magnate has shouldered many responsibilities on behalf of his industry and the country at large. Given the present challenges in the aviation sector where some foreign airlines are already threatening to exit the country or adjusting their business model over their trapped funds, thus heightening fears that air travellers might be exploited, many are already looking towards Onyema and his airline to strengthen operations in those international routes to bridge the gap in case of any eventuality.
