Air Peace says it plans to begin daily flights from Lagos to Kaduna from August 13, 2018 as part of its no-city-left-behind project.
A statement from the airline’s Corporate Communications Manager, Mr. Chris Iwarah says the carrier is pleased to connect and unite the South and North of Nigeria by air and that the airline which recently secured the renewal of its International Air Transport Association Operation Safety Audit (IOSA) certificate, is broadening its route network in the North of Nigeria.
He adds that this is aligned with the airline’s determination to democratize flying experience, give hope to unserved and underserved destinations as well as positively impact the economies of destinations where it operates.
“We are delighted to announce that Kaduna will reflect on our route map starting from August 13 just exactly a week after commencement of our four weekly flights from Lagos, Abuja and Accra to Monrovia,” states Iwarah.
“We are convinced beyond any shadow of doubt that Nigeria stands to gain socially and economically if the North and South are seamlessly connected by air.”
“Our flights to Kaduna will afford air travellers, especially in the North, an opportunity to experience the excellent services Air Peace has been reputed for since we commenced scheduled operations almost four years ago,” he adds.
Iwarah explains that the new route will perfectly fit into the airline’s strategy to end the travel difficulties of the North of Nigeria with Air Peace flights to Abuja, Yola, Kano, Sokoto, Benue, among other cities in the area, adding that the airline is determined to replicate the success of its intervention in the travel difficulties experienced on the Kano and Yola routes, which were inaugurated on February 12 and February 15, respectively.
Air Peace equally plans to add more routes, including Makurdi, Warri and Port Harcourt NAF Base, under its no-city-left-behind project, even as it will shortly reopen Asaba and Sokoto operations.
