Air Peace Announces New Date For Freetown, Banjul, Dakar Launch
Nigeria’s Air Peace has announced February 19, 2018 as the new date for the launch of its flights to Freetown in Sierra Leone, Banjul in The Gambia, and Dakar in Senegal.
Air Peace had originally planned to launch the Freetown, Banjul, and Dakar flights on December 15, 2017, but suspended it at the last minute due to strike action by air traffic control in Dakar.
The four-weekly service will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays from Murtala Muhammed International Airport Lagos using a Boeing 737, departing for Freetown at 7am local time.
The routes which are part of the second phase of the airline’s expansion project on the West Coast of Africa, will bring its regional destinations to four and its total destinations to 14.
Air Peace made its first scheduled commercial flight out of Nigeria from the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos into the Kotoka International Airport, Accra-Ghana on February 16.
The airline plans to launch flights to 5 more regional routes as well as 6 international destinations including Dubai, London, Guangzhou-China, Houston, Mumbai, and South Africa.
