Air Peace has disclosed plans to start scheduled flights to Guangzhou, China and Mumbai, India as from this month (July).
Spokesman for the airline, Mr. Stanley Olisa who disclosed this in a statement, also said flight to Tel Aviv, Israel was also under consideration.
Besides, he said flights to two African destinations- Malabo in Equatorial Guinea and Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo – were also in the works.
He explained that the new destinations are testimonies to the airline’s determination to connect Nigerians seamlessly to other parts of the world and deepen socio-economic ties between Nigeria and other countries.
“The airline will be launching its initial one weekly flight to China on July 13, 2022, and two weekly flights to India later this month, as it hopes to increase frequencies when operations garner momentum,” he said.
He added that the airline’s entry into both countries would strengthen their bilateral ties.
“Guangzhou and Mumbai are not new terrains for Air Peace as we have operated a number of special/evacuation flights into both cities in the past.
“So, we are very familiar with the airspace and plans to launch Tel Aviv, Israel, are in top gear. This is also not a new space for us; we have operated flights to and from the country.
“Air Peace is unflinchingly committed to reducing the air travel burden of Africans, and we will continue to grow our route network as well as modernise our fleet strategically.
“Air Peace has accomplished so much in just seven years of operation, as we now have a network of twenty domestic routes, seven regional routes and two international destinations, including Dubai and Johannesburg, which we launched in 2019 and 2020 respectively,” stated.
He also reiterated the airline’s resolve to “continue providing peaceful and strategic network connections, in line with its no-city-left-behind mantra.”
