A top airline in Nigeria, Air Peace, has announced the expansion of its regional network of seven West African cities to include flights between Abuja and Banjul, as well as Abuja and Dakar. In addition, the airline intends to start operating flights into Maiduguri and Jos.
The West Coast connections from Abuja will run on Mondays and Fridays, according to Air Peace Spokesperson Stanley Olisa, who made this announcement in a news release sent to journalists over the weekend.
He also reported that Air Peace was putting the finishing touches on its plans to increase its presence in the cities of Maiduguri and Jos in the North East and North Central regions, respectively. In the areas of Gombe, Ilorin, and Makurdi, Air Peace already runs three routes.
“These new connections and planned routes are a further testament to our determination to continually interconnect Nigeria, giving Nigerians more network options and seamless connectivity. Also, Mumbai, Tel Aviv, Malabo, and Congo Kinshasa are in the works,” Olisa stated.
The airline said in January 2023 that it has 38 aircraft and is expecting eight brand new Embraer 195-E2s from its firm order in 2019 and additional 15 brand new Boeing 737 Max 8 and 10 order.
With a network of 20 domestic, seven regional, and three international flights with an expanding, mixed-modern fleet made up of Boeing 777, Boeing 737, Embraer 195-E2, Airbus 320, ERJ 145, and Dornier 328 Jet aircraft, Air Peace dominates Nigeria’s aviation sector.
