Air Peace has further expanded its wings to another West African country with the commencement of flight operations to Lome, Togo.

The operations which commenced today (28th July, 2023) is geared towards easing air travel and bridging the connectivity gap among West African countries.

According to the safety Manager, Air Peace Capt. Godfrey Ogbogu in his opening address at the launch in Lome airport, the airline is delighted that Togo is joining their route network, making it eight regional routes in less than nine years since inception.

He said, Togo and Nigeria currently have strong socio-economic ties and both countries have collaborated on significant fronts.

Capt. Ogbogu noted that, the launch of flights by Air Peace into Lome today has given credence to these ties and will foster commercial cooperation as well as deepen bilateral ties between both countries.

He added, “Nigerians come to Togo for business and other purposes and the launch of this connectivity adds fillip to this economic exchange between both countries and also advances development”.

“We’re reputed for our no-city-left-behind initiative and this is not just for domestic operations. Our no-city-left-behind drive extends to the West Coast, as we’re poised to continually interconnect key cities in the sub-region, making it easy for Africans to maximise the payoffs of air travel for the collective development of all the nations”.

The Air Peace Safety Manager also disclosed that, in keeping with this corporate ambition, the airline would be launching soon, flight operations into Cotonou in Benin Republic, Abidjan in Cote d’ivoire, Congo Kinshasa and Malabo in Equatorial Guinea.

The new routes he said, would happen before the end of 2023, “some of these routes will have been launched, because they’re already in the works”.

He assured that, Air Peace will continue to provide best-in-class flight services, driven by a customer-first orientation and hinged on strict adherence to established safety standards.

“We’re also modernising and increasing our fleet, especially with the brand new Embraer 195-E2 aircraft, to continue to give our customers a matchless experience on board- whether domestic, regional or international”.

“We currently boast of twenty domestic routes, eight regional and five international destinations, including Israel, India and China. Also planned for launch in the future are Houston-USA and London. We’re constantly reviewing our route network in line with the travel needs of the flying public”.

Capt. Ogbogu, thanked the Togolese authorities and their partners present at the event and the Nigerian Government for making the launch possible and promised to work jointly with all the relevant aviation stakeholders to ensure this new route produces the desired outcomes for all.
