Nigeria's Air Peace to Launch Flights to More African Countries
Nigeria’s Air Peace is planning to launch more regional operations in the next few weeks with the launch of flights to Monrovia, Lome, Abidjan and other West Coast destinations.
The plan to add Monrovia, Lome and Abidjan to the airline’s route network, the airline said, was in appreciation of its customers on the West Coast who had reached out to it to expand its regional operations to cover more underserved destinations.
Air Peace had on February 16, 2017, launched service between Lagos and Accra, Ghana. Earlier this year, the airline deepened its West Coast operations with the launch of flights from Lagos to Freetown, Banjul and Dakar on February 19, 2018.
The airline said it was already realising its goal of guaranteeing seamless connectivity on the West Coast of Africa with the launch of its Accra, Ghana; Freetown, Sierra Leone and Dakar, Senegal flight operations.
Meanwhile, the airline has reassured that its fleet comprises Boeing aircraft with some of the best engines in the world and built to ensure the safety as well as comfort of the flying public.
In another development, Air Peace has reassured that it was running a strict safety programme, saying that the recent FAA directive to airlines to perform mandatory inspection on Boeing 737 engines, does not apply to its aircraft.
Its fleet, the airline said, comprised the family of Boeing 737 aircraft with some of the best engine performance record in the world.
Air peace’s fleet of Boeing 737-300 and Boeing 737-500 aircraft are fitted with a CFM56-3C engine while the inspection was ordered on aircraft with CFM56-7B engines.
