Air Peace commences transit flights via Lagos Airport

Air Peace has announced that it is set to resume its direct flight connectivity to Guangzhou, China, on Thursday, December 28, 2023.

The Nigerian carrier blazing the trail on the number of new international routes issued a press release on Friday stating that passengers can now fly Accra-China-Accra, a new connection added to the Guangzhou-China connection.

Speaking on this development, Stanley Olisa, Air Peace Spokesperson, said the resumption of flights to China and the newly introduced connection are in furtherance of Air Peace’s commitment to providing connectivity across cities and between continents while also fostering socio-economic relations.

Air Peace commenced direct flights to China in 2022 with a high passenger load on its inaugural flight. Since then, the airline has launched three other international routes—Mumbai, Tel Aviv, and Jeddah—in 2023, with a historic flight to the Caribbean nation of Antigua and Barbuda in August this year.

The airline is also gearing up to kick off scheduled flights to London soon.

Currently, the indigenous airline leads Nigeria’s aviation industry with a network of 21 domestic routes, 8 regional routes, and 6 international destinations, with an increasing modern fleet of over 30 aircraft, including 5 brand new Embraer 195-E2s and a recently penned order for 5 brand new Embraer 175s.
