With the commencement of Sokoto operations, Air Peace will have launched its fifth route in six months having started Lagos-Benin-Lagos and the Abuja-Benin-Abuja routes in September 2016, Lagos-Uyo-Lagos in December 2016.

According to the statement, the airline plans to launch more regional and international destinations, including Abidjan, Douala, Niamey, Dakar, Johannesburg, South Africa, Dubai, Mumbai, Guangzhou-China, Atlanta and London.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
