“Now, passengers from other countries can fly Air Peace to international and regional destinations through converging in Lagos from where they are flown to those destinations seamlessly without leaving the airport”, the release said.

The airline emphasised that it will continue to innovate in its flight service delivery, ensuring that its customers get the best experience across all touchpoints while adding that strategic connectivity across key domestic, regional and international cities remains a major part of its ambition.
