Air Peace takes delivery of 13th Aircraft in Nigeria

Air Peace has taken delivery of a Being 737-300 aircraft, making it the 13th in less than three years of the Air Peace commercial flight operations in Nigeria.

The delivery of the 13th aircraft is part of the expansion drive of the airline to boost its flight operations and increase its fleet size to 22.

The aircraft, a Boeing 737-300, arrived at the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos on Friday and was warmly received by excited Air Peace staff.

Before landing in Lagos, the aircraft had earlier landed at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja on Thursday with the chairman/chief executive officer of Air Peace, Mr. Allen Onyema on board.

The aircraft was received by an excited Air Peace team in Lagos comprising the vice chairman, Mrs. Alice Onyema, chief operating officer, Mrs. Oluwatoyin Olajide, director of Finance Administration, Mrs. Ejiro Eghagha, technical consultant, Mr. Ben Adeyileka, quality and safety manager, Mr. Patrick Achurefe, cabin services manager/head of commercial, Florence Opia and corporate communications manager, Mr. Chris Iwarah.

The team prayed for the continued success of the airline, which lifted a third of all passengers in the country in the first quarter of this year.

Speaking on the arrival of the new aircraft, Onyema assured that Air Peace was "committed to investing in equipment and services that make travelling more comfortable, convenient and seamless for the flying public."

He stated that: "The arrival of our newest aircraft underscores the depth of our resolve to make a huge difference in the Nigerian aviation industry. We are matching our huge expansion project with the right equipment and people to ensure the delivery of the best flight services to our valued guests.

"In a couple of weeks, more B737, B777 and Embraer 145 jets will be joining to increase our growing fleet to 22. We are ready and determined to cover more Nigerian cities with our Embraer jets. We will also deploy more B737 aircraft to strengthen our regional operations, which we started with our first flight into Accra-Ghana on February 16. We will soon launch more routes in the West Coast of Africa, including Lome, Abidjan, Douala, Dakar and Niamey. We are doing everything to give our esteemed guests the best long-haul flight experience with our B777 aircraft. With God on our side and with the support of our valued guests, we are sure of delivering a whole new experience on the London, Atlanta, Dubai, Mumbai, Guangzhou-China and South Africa routes soon."

It will be recalled that the airline took delivery of its 12th aircraft, a B737, in February this year.

Air Peace currently operates daily flights from its Lagos hub into and out of Accra-Ghana and many cities in the country.
