Air Peace launches direct flights to Banjul, increases Accra service


Air Peace has started directed flights from Lagos to Banjul, The Gambia.

Spokesman for the airline, Mr. Chris Iwarah said in a statement that the Lagos-Banjul direct service begins today, January 7, 2019 adding that the airline would no more route the flights through Accra, Ghana.

“We are pleased to announce the commencement of our non-stop flights to Banjul, the capital city of The Gambia, from Monday, January 7, 2019. We had routed our flights to Banjul through Accra, Ghana.

“The new schedule follows our experiment with direct flights from Lagos to Freetown.

“The pieces of feedback we have received from members of the flying public indicate that they prefer to take direct flights to Freetown and Banjul.

The option saves air travellers money and time,” he said.

Iwarah explained that development would avail travellers an exciting opportunity to cut cost and travel time.

He pledged that Air Peace would continue to adjust its schedules to better serve its customers on the West Coast of Africa.

It would be recalled that the airline had earlier broken its connecting flights to Freetown, Sierra Leone. It now operates direct Lagos-Freetown-Lagos flights.

Iwarah also said the airline had increased its scheduled operations to Ghana to consolidate its leadership on the West Coast route.

“We have also increased our offering on the Lagos-Accra with more flights. The new Banjul and Accra flight operations, we are sure, will not only deepen our West Coast operations, but also deliver a variety of smart options to our valued customers.

“We are a customer-centric airline and the strategy of our leadership of the airline business in Nigeria and West Africa is anchored on attaching great importance to the feedback of our esteemed customers,” he said.
