Air Peace Will Launch Operations In Jeddah In October

The biggest airline in West and Central Africa, Air Peace, has announced that on October 31, 2023, direct flights will begin from Lagos and Kano to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

On Tuesday, September 12, 2023, the airline revealed this during a meeting with travel agents in Kano. The Lagos-Abuja and Kano-Jeddah flights would run three days a week, according to the airline.

According to Air Peace’s Ground Operations Manager, Ayodeji Adeyemi, the connectivity will be direct using the Boeing 777 aircraft. In addition to thanking the travel agencies, he reaffirmed the airline’s commitment to working with them to make the most of the new route for everyone’s benefit.

Adeyemi stated: “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.”

Abdulrazak Ibrahim, vice president of the National Association of Nigerian Travel Agencies’ Northern Zone, praised Air Peace for its proposed route to Jeddah and reaffirmed his organization’s support for it. He also urged the airline to continue setting the standard for route connectivity between domestic and foreign cities.

With a network of 20 domestic routes, eight regional routes, and five overseas destinations, Air Peace, which led Nigeria’s aviation industry in August 2023 with a special flight to Antigua and Barbuda and plans for regular flights there, is the largest airline in the country.
