Cyber criminals have reportedly cloned the website of Indigenous aviation company, Air Peace and scammed unsuspected customers.

Air Peace raised the alarm on Tuesday, saying some passengers intending to book UK flights on its portal were defrauded by fraudsters who cloned its official website.

This is happening a few days after the airline launched its historic direct flight from Nigeria to the United Kingdom.

The airline stated in a post on X (formerly Twitter) that the creators of the website used some of its website identity collaterals to create the fake site, which they presented as the airline’s official booking platform.

It reads: “Our attention has been drawn to the existence of a website “www.flyairpeace.uk” purporting to be an official website and defrauding unsuspecting individuals.

“We would like to dissociate the Air Peace brand from this fraudulent site because it is not owned by us. The one and only website of the Air Peace remains “www.flyairpeace.com.

“Members of the public should totally ignore the site, as it is impersonating Air Peace and fleecing passengers.”

The airline on 30th of March, 2024 commenced daily flight to Gatwick, London.

In November, Air Peace’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Allen Onyema, announced that the airline had successfully obtained the Foreign Carrier Operator Permit and Third Country Operator Permit.

With a capacity of 274, the aircraft accommodated 260 passengers on its maiden voyage, symbolizing the eagerness and enthusiasm of Nigerians to connect with the world.
