Air Peace Commences Flights to New Anambra Airport
Anambra people from the Southeastern region of Nigeria can heave a sigh of relief as they can now fly directly from Lagos and Abuja into the new Anambra Airport Umueri near the commercial city of Onitsha.
Nigeria’s and West Africa largest carrier, Air Peace, will commence scheduled flights operations into the new international airport with effect from 7 December, 2021.
In a statement, the airline's spokesman, Stanley Olisa, said the new services will initially operate four times a week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. As operations gather momentum, the services shall increase to daily.
It'll be recalled that following series of demonstration flights and other regulations, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority(NCAA), on 1 December, 2021, gave approval for the commencement of commercial flights to the new airport.
According to Olisa, Air Peace is unwaveringly determined to seamlessly interconnect Nigeria and plans to commence Anambra-Kano-Anambra, Anambra-Ibadan-Anambra and Anambra-Port Harcourt-Anambra flights by the end of January 2022.
The route expansion by Air Peace is a reflection of the airline's “No-city-left-behind” initiative, which has seen the airline expand its footprints both in Nigeria and beyond, while easing the transportation burden of Nigerians.
With a fleet of 32 aircraft, including 4 brand new Embraer 195-E2 jets and 2 Airbus 320s, Air Peace currently flies to 27 destinations, including 19 domestic, 6 regional, and 2 international destinations.
