Air Peace has announced the commencement of scheduled commercial flights from Lagos and Port Harcourt to Douala, the capital of Cameroon, on August 19, 2021.
This is as the airline is also set to launch the Abuja-Ibadan route on August 17.
According to Stanley Olisa, the airline’s Spokesperson, the route from Douala will operate three days per week while service from Ibadan will operate daily.
He said: “These new routes will be operated with our ultramodern Embraer 195-E2 aircraft, and as we take delivery of more brand new E195-E2s as well as other aircraft undergoing maintenance abroad, we shall reinstate more routes and open up more connections”.
Olisa said customers can now book travel on the new routes on the airline’s website, flyairpeace.com, or its mobile app. In line with the company’s no-city-left-behind policy, he reiterated Air Peace’s commitment to providing peaceful and strategic connectivity.
As you may recall, Air Peace recently reopened most of its regional routes that had been suspended following the outbreak of COVID-19 and the lockdown last year. The airline has restored its Freetown, Banjul, Dakar, and Accra services.
Currently, Air Peace offers 17 domestic routes, 5 regional routes, and 2 international destinations, including Johannesburg, while boasting of a mixed fleet of 28 aircraft, including three brand new 124-seat capacity E195-E2 jets.
