Air Peace to Launch Commercial Flights to Johannesburg
Air Peace will commence regular commercial flights from Lagos to Johannesburg, South Africa soon. The Lagos-Johannesburg-Lagos route will be operated thrice a week.
According to the airline, it has made huge progress in meeting the requirements of the aviation authorities in both South Africa and Nigeria to enable it launch flight operations into the country before the year runs out.
In a press release issued by its Spokesperson, Stanley Olisa, Air Peace hinted that South Africa is one of the destinations which the Federal Government had designated it to operate into.
Olisa stated that South Africa has always been on the radar of Air Peace as the airline is constantly reviewing its route network and looking at strategic ways of expanding it to provide immense value to Nigerians first, and other Africans.
He added that this focused route planning and expansion is driven by the airline’s ‘no-city-left-behind’ initiative, an ambition to interconnect various cities through the provision of safe, comfortable, and cost-effective flights.
In addition to South Africa, Air Peace has also been designated to operate commercial flights into Mumbai, London, Guangzhou-China, Houston, with other destinations still in the works.
Air Peace, in a historic feat, had kicked off international flight operations with direct flights from Lagos to Sharjah, Dubai in the United Arab Emirates in July 2019.
The airline has consistently shown vibrancy and reliability by operating several evacuation flights to and from China, United Kingdom, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Israel, India and Turkey during the COVID-19 lockdown as well as the free airlift of 503 Nigerians from South Africa amidst the xenophobic onslaught last year.
Reputed for its trailblazing footprints, Air Peace is the largest airline in Nigeria and West Africa.
