“Air Peace is determined to interconnect every part of Nigeria. It is our own way of uniting our nation and promoting healthy socio-economic exchanges between different cities”, the airline stated.
Stanley Olisa, Air Peace’s corporate communications executive, stated that the airline has new local and international routes in the offing, including Ilorin, Makurdi, Ibadan, Congo DRC, Congo Brazzaville, Douala and Johannesburg.
He asserted that the airline has a ‘no-city-left-behind’ initiative which is driving its rapid route expansion.
The spokesperson restated the airline’s commitment to providing its customers with best-in-class flight experience, adding that some of its planned routes will be activated in the first half of 2020. It can be recalled that Air Peace, just in December 2019, announced that it will begin flights into Ibadan from Kano, Owerri and Abuja.
