Air Peace opens Ibadan, Douala routes, begins flights to Gombe

Air Peace airline has expressed readiness to commence scheduled commercial flights from Lagos and Port Harcourt to Douala, the capital of Cameroun on August 19, 2021. This is as the airline launches the Abuja-Ibadan route on August 17.

The spokesperson of the airline, Stanley Olisa, said the route expansion was part of moves to improve air connectivity within the country and in the region.

Olisa 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.”

He added that Air Peace is committed to providing peaceful and strategic connectivity, in line with its no-city-left-behind drive.

The airline recently resumed most of its regional routes that were suspended following the outbreak of COVID-19 and the lockdown that ensued last year. The airline has restored its Freetown, Banjul, Dakar, and Accra services.

In a related development, Air Peace said it has expanded its wings in the North East by launching commercial flights into Gombe State from Lagos and Abuja.

Mr Stanley Olisa, the airline’s media executive, said in a statement on Wednesday that the airline would operate three weekly flights into the state.

Olisa said Air Peace brand new E-195 aircraft with flight number P47443 from Lagos and Abuja to Gombe landed in grand style on Wednesday at the Sani Abacha International Airport.

Several government dignitaries welcomed the flight.

Governor Muhammadu Yahaya said that the state shall continue to encourage, support and partner with Air Peace as the airline provides essential services to the citizens.

Yahaya, who was represented by Manassah Jatau, the Deputy Governor of the state, assured the airline that the government and general public were ever ready to pay for services rendered by the airline at anytime as the market forces may dictate.

Ayodeji Adeyemi, ground operations manager, Air Peace, said the new route, being officially flagged off today, means a lot to the Air Peace family as its ambition is to interconnect various cities and zones across Nigeria with seamless flights.

He noted that its consistent route expansion is propelled by the airline’s strong resolve to close the loopholes in Nigeria’s air travel and more importantly, give the Nigerian flying public multiple network options.

He added that with this new route, Air Peace is providing more options of connectivity for the people of Gombe State.
