Air Peace has announced the start of its scheduled operations to the Nigeria Air Force (NAF) Base in Port Harcourt, Rivers State on January 18.
Spokesman for the airline, Mr. Chris Iwarah said in a statement that the flights will originate from the Murtala Muhammed Terminal Airport 2, Lagos and the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja into and out of the NAF Base.
He also said the operations will be managed by the carrier’s subsidiary, Air Peace Hopper as part of its no-city-left behind project targeted at connecting underserved and unserved domestic and regional routes.
“We are delighted to announce the commencement of our flight operations from the Murtala Muhammed Airport 2, Lagos and the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport, Abuja to the Nigerian Air Force Base, Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
“Our valued customers had yearned for the extension of our flight operations to the Port Harcourt NAF Base and we are quite pleased to respond to their request to enter the route.
“The new route is in fulfillment of our promise to connect more unserved and under-served routes in Nigeria and West Africa this year.
“Our flights to the NAF Base would be of great service to especially the military and security community as well as other travellers who seek an alternative terminal to the Port Harcourt Airport, where we currently operate several flights into daily.
“For proper coordination, we have brought the Port Harcourt NAF Base operations under our subsidiary, Air Peace Hopper. This, we believe, is a major step towards giving our valued customers the best deal in flight operations this year,” said Iwarah.
