In a bid to expand its business frontiers across the country, one of the indigenous airlines, Air Peace has concluded plans to connect northern and southern routes of Nigeria from the Ilorin International Airport.
Air Peace is one of the biggest airlines in the country with 24 fleets of aircraft.
This was disclosed by the Public Communication Head of Air Peace, Mr. Chris Iwarah, during a telephone interview with Pilot Aviation last night.
“Ilorin is part of the operations we are planning under our Air Peace Embraer 145 plane. We are planning to en- route Ilorin, Markudi, Ibadan, Enugu and other routes.
“We want our Embraer aircraft with 50 seats to cover these routes and we are still putting the arrangement together and believe that will happen shortly before the end of the year,” Iwarah added.
According to him, they are expecting a delivery of two more aircraft to start the operations.
He stressed that the vision of the company is to cover all underserved routes by connecting the northern to southern region.
“We want to unite Nigeria as a whole through air travel to boost the country economy. We want to connect Ilorin with Enugu, Port Harcourt and other South- East regions as aviation hub and viable business activities,” he explained.
