Nigeria's Air Peace is finalizing plans to boost it fleet with Boeing 777 aircraft as it prepares to commence international scheduled passenger operations.
Confirming this to The Afritraveller in a twitter chat, the airline said the Boeing 777 aircraft will be used to launch operations to China, Mumbai, Dubai, Atlanta, London and other international destinations.

On the international scene, the airline was granted permission to serve Guangzhou (China), Dubai (UAE), Atlanta (USA), Mumbai (India) and Johannesburg (South Africa).
Air Peace currently operates a fleet of 12 aircraft to 10 domestic destinations including Lagos, Abuja (now Kaduna), Benin, Enugu, Owerri, Calabar, Enugu, Sokoto and Port Harcourt. Regionally, it operates to Accra, Ghana.
