Air Peace to commence Abuja-Gombe-Abuja flights soon

...to also resume Yola service

In keeping with its no-city-left-behind vision, Air Peace has announced it will be launching scheduled commercial flights into Gombe from Abuja. Similarly, the airline has also revealed plans to resume its Yola flight services.

In a news release shared with journalists on Sunday, Oluwatoyin Olajide, the airline’s chief operating officer, said the decision to commence the Abuja-Gombe-Abuja route is a reflection of Air Peace’s resolve to open up the North East as the region is currently underserved.

“As part of our strategic route expansion drive and the determination to provide key connections addressing the air travel needs of Nigerians while fostering economic development and unity, we are set to kick off Gombe operations and resume our Yola flight services very soon,” Olajide said.

She said the airline has already set up the Gombe station and is calling on residents of the state to apply to the airline as there are roles to be filled in the station.

On aircraft maintenance, she said the airline has 17 aircraft undergoing varying levels of maintenance overseas and once they start returning, “we shall launch more routes and resume others that we temporarily suspended”.

The two brand-new 124-seat capacity E195-E2 jets (of the 13 ordered) recently received from Embraer would soon be deployed to boost domestic and regional flight connectivity, she said.
