Nigeria’s largest carrier, Air Peace, has launched four new routes to satisfy growing air travel demands, including Port Harcourt-Kano-Port Harcourt, Port Harcourt-Benin-Port Harcourt, and Kano-Asaba-Kano. This comes after the arrival of more of its aircraft and a few more expected.
Stanley Olisa, the spokesperson for Air Peace, revealed to journalists on Thursday that Kano-PHC-Kano will operate twice weekly starting June 15, while Asaba-Kano-Asaba will run three times every week starting June 14. Benin-PHC-Benin is scheduled to begin operation on June 18.
“Tickets for these new connections are already selling and the flying public can start booking on our website flyairpeace.com or the mobile app”, he asserted, while adding that the new connections further demonstrate Air Peace’s commitment to providing strategic connectivity which addresses the gaps in Nigeria’s air travel.
The airline plans to start operating flights to Ilorin from Lagos and Abuja on June 17, 2021 and plans to launch routes to Gombe and Ibadan soon.
Currently, Air Peace serves 16 domestic routes, 5 regional routes, and 2 international destinations, including Johannesburg, and boasts a mixed fleet of 28 aircraft, including two brand new Embraer 195-E2 jets delivered earlier this year
