Barely one year after launching commercial flight operations in Nigeria, Air Peace Airline has announced its intention to commence commercial flight operations to no fewer than five countries in the West African sub-region.
The Chairman of the airline, Mr. Allen Onyema, who unveiled the plan to commence flight operations to the countries in African West Coast, said his company had already obtained license to operate into the countries.
According to him, Air Peace will soon begin to fly into Niger, Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Gabon, Senegal and Cameron, from Nigeria.
Onyema said it was the first time in Nigeria for an airline to record such achievement, adding that his company’s application for the license was approved because of its operational strength and capacity based on safety and zero tolerance for wrong doing.
He also announced plans by the airline to expand operations to Asia and Europe. “They have given us permission to go to Niger, Cote D’ivoire, Gabon, Ghana Senegal and Cameroon. On the long term, we are looking at Europe and Asia and we believe that when the time comes, they should allow us.”
The chairman said the airline had airlifted 500,000 passengers to different locations within the country in the last 11 months, saying the figure was remarkable.
