Nigeria's Air Peace Emerges Best Carrier in West Africa
Barely 16 months after launching regional flights, Nigeria’s Air Peace has proved its mettle on the West Coast of Africa, picking the Balafon Award for “Best Airline in West Africa" for 2018.
The airline was presented with the award at the opening session of the 4th Accra Weizo in Accra, Ghana on Friday.
Organiser of the 4th Accra Weizo and Publisher of ATQ News, Mr. Ikechi Uko said Air Peace emerged winner of the Balafon Award because of the efficiency it had brought to bear on its regional operations.
The Balafon Awards was instituted by ATQ News in 2009 to recognise individuals and organisations who have distinguished themselves in aviation, travel and tourism in West Africa.
Speaking after receiving the award, Air Peace Corporate Communications Manager, Mr. Chris Iwarah said the carrier was pleased that its intervention in fixing the challenges of air travel on the West Coast of Africa was yielding positive results.
The carrier, he said, would deepen air connectivity in West Africa by launching its Monrovia service and linking it with its Accra, Abuja and Lagos operations in the next few weeks.
Air Peace launched its first regional service to Accra on February 16, 2017. It added Freetown, Banjul and Dakar to its regional route network on February 19, 2018.
