In line with its route expansion drive, West Africa’s largest carrier, Air Peace, is set to commence flight operations into Makurdi, Benue State Capital, from Lagos and Abuja on December 7, 2020.
This is as the airline is also billed to resume flights to Uyo from Lagos and Abuja on the said date.
The airline’s Spokesperson, Stanley Olisa, revealed this in a media statement released on Wednesday.
Olisa stated that the new connections are operated on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
He noted that Makurdi has been on the airline’s radar for some time and is being launched to meet the air travel needs of Nigerians who connect Lagos and Abuja to Makurdi and the other way round.
“It is our promise to interconnect every part of this country and foster economic relations between cities. Be assured that we are coming with more destinations. We are starting Johannesburg in December and India is in the offing”, he said.
According to him, ‘the Makurdi route launch reflects Air Peace’s enduring commitment to creating more seamless connections and network options for its teeming customers across Nigeria, and we cannot relent in this regard’.
He reiterated the commitment of the airline to giving its passengers world-class flight experience, while adding “we will continue to provide safe and comfortable flights”.
Olisa urged the flying public to continue to fly Air Peace and experience its signature hospitality.
It would be recalled that Air Peace recently announced the commencement of flight operations into Johannesburg, South Africa, slated for December 16, 2020.
