Nigeria: Air Peace to commence Jeddah Operations,October

West and Central Africa’s largest carrier, Air Peace airline has announced the commencement of direct flights from Lagos and Kano to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia on October 31, 2023.

The airline disclosed this during an engagement session with travel agents in Kano on September 12, 2023. According to the airline, the Lagos-Abuja and Kano-Jeddah will operate three days weekly.

Ground Operations Manager, Air Peace, Ayodeji Adeyemi said that the connectivity would be direct using the Boeing 777 aircraft. He thanked the travel agents and restated the airline’s commitment to working with them to ensure the new route is maximised for a win-win for all.

“In the first half of this year, we launched two major international destinations – Mumbai and Tel Aviv – and now, we are gearing up for Jeddah next month. This does not only signal growth and expansion for the airline, but it also demonstrates our firm commitment to reducing the burden associated with connecting cities with stopovers. We promise direct connectivity, and this is evident in our international route network. We offer direct flights at affordable fares,” Adeyemi said.

The Vice-president, National Association of Nigerian Travel Agencies, Northern Zone, Abdulrazak Ibrahim, commended Air Peace for the planned Jeddah route and reaffirmed their support while also urging the airline to keep blazing the trail in driving route connectivity across domestic and international cities.

Air Peace, which operated a special flight to Antigua and Barbuda in August 2023, with prospects of scheduled operations into the Caribbean nation, leads Nigeria’s aviation industry with a network of 20 domestic routes, eight regional and five international destinations.
