Posted by Justina Okpanku
Air Peace has brought in a Boeing 737-800 New Generation to boost its expansion, domestic and regional operations. The aircraft arrived the Murtala Muhammed International Airport at the weekend from Europe.
The airline said soon it will take on more international routes such as London, Houston, Johannesburg, Bombay and Guangzhou.
Corporate Communications Executive of the airline, Stanley Olisa, said the new arrival is a 160- seater aircraft comprising 16 Business Class seats and 144 economy class seats.
Olisa said the resolve of the airline is to spread its operations across the length and breadth of the country in order to ease the burden of travel within the country and the West African sub-region.
Air Peace may have been the first airline in sub-Saharan Africa to place an order for 10 B737 Max in 2018.
Earlier this year, the airline had ordered 20 brand new 124-seater E195-E2 jets from Embraer, thus making history as the launch customer of this new aircraft .
In 2017, Air Peace became the first airline to acquire and register a Boeing 777 in Nigeria. It later acquired three more 777s for its international operations, which started on July 5, last year, with flights to Dubai through the Sharjah International Airport.
