Nigerian private airline, Airpeace, on Friday 5th of August 2023, achieved a major milestone, by being the first national airline to operate a nonstop direct flight to Antigua and Barbuda in the Caribbean.
Spokesman of Air Peace, Stanley Olisa, disclosed that the flight concretised the airline’s relationship with the government of Antigua and Barbuda and signaled more possibilities of socio-economic payoffs for Nigeria and the Caribbean nation.
Noting that the flight was not an inaugural flight, Olisa stated that Air Peace was looking to commence scheduled commercial flights into the two-island country and wants Nigerian investors to see the investment opportunities that abound in Antigua and Barbuda, especially in the area of tourism, and factoring her conducive business environment.
Olisa, added that tourism was a major revenue earner for Antigua and Barbuda and hinted that the special flight which departed on Saturday, was a 4-day trip featuring a key business conference for strategic discourses on investment opportunities, networking and other planned recreational activities around the Antigua Carnival.
