Air Peace Takes Delivery of Two New Aircraft

August 29, 2016

Nigeria's Air Peace has acquired two new Boeing 737-500 aircraft as part of efforts to boost its fleet in readiness for the launch of flights into the African market.


Speaking in an interview with journalists, the Chairman/CEO of the airline, Chief Allen Onyeama, said the airline had been licenced to fly outside Nigeria and that it had become necessary to make investments in the purchase of new aircraft for the new routes.


“We have been designated to fly into these regional routes: Dakar, Senegal; Accra, Ghana, Niamey, Niger; Abidjan, Ivory Coast; and Douala, Cameroon.


“One of the new aircraft has the capacity to take 142 passengers, while the other can take 126 passengers. In our fleet, we have nine Boeing and one Dornier aircraft, which makes us the second largest airline in Nigeria in terms of the number of aircraft. Some of the aircraft we will deploy for the regional routes."
