Air Peace, Nigeria’s leading carrier, continues to expand its international reach, offering enhanced connectivity and fostering economic growth. Launching its operations in 2014, Air Peace has since established routes to Dubai, South Africa, India, China, and Israel. It has also boosted its presence in West and Central Africa, highlighting the potential for Nigerian airlines on international routes.
In March, the airline introduced a direct flight service to Mumbai, India, marking its fourth international destination. The direct route offers a quicker and more convenient option for passengers, many of whom are Indians living in Nigeria. “Our Mumbai service is direct- meaning no stopovers…we’re offering a launch fare of 450,000 naira. That’s unbeatable,” said Oluwatoyin Olajide, Chief Operating Officer, Air Peace.
Following this, the airline started non-stop flights to Israel in April, from Lagos and Abuja. “Our entry into Israel today will open up more layers of opportunities and possibilities socially, and economically,” said Air Peace Chairman Allen Onyema. The direct route will significantly cut travel time for Nigerian travelers going to Israel.
Today, the airline commences flights to Lome, Togo, as part of its efforts to increase its presence in West Africa. The Lagos-Lome-Lagos route will be operated with the 50-seater Embraer 145 jets.
Air Peace is also operating special flights to Antigua the Caribbean, offering attractive packages for the Antigua Carnival from August 5-9, 2023.
These strategic moves by Air Peace underscore the need for the federal government to bolster support for Nigerian carriers. This could potentially open more direct flights to cities in the United States and London, UK, further expanding Nigeria’s international connectivity.
