Air Peace has announced its readiness to resume direct scheduled flights to Dubai, United Arab Emirates on March 1.
Mr Stanley Olisa, the airline’s spokesperson, confirmed the development in a statement on Friday in Lagos.
Olisa said that the airline was also set to launch flight operations into Niamey, Niger, on Feb. 25 and in Kinshasha and Malabo in the first quarter of the year.
He said that the Lagos-Dubai-Lagos flights would operate three days weekly from any of its domestic routes through its Lagos hub.
“We are happy to inform the flying public that in tandem with our commitment to provide more flight connectivity and meeting the air travel needs of Nigerians, we are restarting our UAE operations, but with Dubai as the destination and not Sharjah.
“Abundantly, we appreciate the vital role played by the Nigerian government in making this possible,” Olisa said.
The spokesperson said that before the first quarter runs out, the airline would begin scheduled flights to Kinshasha, DR Congo and Malabo, Equatorial Guinea.
According to him, this is to enlarge its footprints in West Africa and offer the flying public more network options.
Niamey flights would operate from Abuja and Kano on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays with the Hopper jets. – NAN.
