To give boost to its international long-haul ambitions, Nigeria's Air Peace is acquiring four Boeing 777-200ERs as disclosed by the airline's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Allen Onyema.
Ch-aviation reports that the four aircraft will be phased in between now and February 2018. One of the aircraft and the first to arrive, is an ex-Emirates aircraft that came off lease in January this year which was sold to Air Peace in a transaction arranged by Novus Aviation.
Air Peace was founded in 2013 and currently operates a fleet of 13 aircraft on scheduled passenger services to major Nigerian cities as well as Accra in Ghana.
The airline is in the process of launching international operations to Guangzhou (China), London (United Kingdom), Dubai (UAE), Atlanta (USA), Mumbai (India) and Johannesburg (South Africa).
Regionally, Air Peace also plans to fly to Niger, Ivory Coast, Gabon, Ghana, Senegal, Cameroon and Congo.
