On Tuesday, Nigeria’s largest airline, Air Peace, will commence scheduled flights into Anambra.
Mr Stanley Olisa, the group’s spokesperson, verified the news in a statement made in Lagos on Sunday.
The start came after the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority approved the Anambra International Cargo and Passenger Airport, according to Olisa.
He went on to say that the airline’s continual route expansion was a result of its “no-city-left-behind” strategy.
Olisa further claimed that as a result of the move, the airline has expanded its footprints both in Nigeria and beyond, relieving the transportation load on Nigerians.
He said the airline will start with four flights per week and that customers would be able to fly directly into the Anambra Airport in Umueri from Lagos and Abuja.
“This is great news for the people of Anambra as we are launching four flights weekly into the new airport on Tuesday.
“For a start, we shall be operating on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, and as operations gather momentum, we shall increase frequencies to daily flights,’’ he stated.
Passengers may begin booking on Air Peace’s website, www.flyairpeace.com, or on the airline’s mobile app, according to Olisa, who stressed that the airline wanted to connect Anambra with locations other than Lagos and Abuja.
He stated that the airline will begin flying Anambra-Kano-Anambra, Anambra-Ibadan-Anambra, and Anambra-Port Harcourt-Anambra routes by the end of January 2022.
He went on to say that Air Peace was adamant about interconnecting Nigeria, creating links that would allow for frictionless economic exchanges and create togetherness.
Air Peace now serves 19 domestic flights, six regional routes, and two overseas destinations, according to the Nigerian News Agency (NAN).
The airline’s fleet of 32 aircraft is growing, with four new Embraer 195-E2 planes and two Airbus 320s joining the fleet.
