Air Peace has again made history with the commencement of flights to the continent of Asia, Guangzhou-China.

The inaugural flight had 240 passengers onboard operated with the airline’s Boeing 777.

According to the Chief Operating officer Air Peace, Oluwatoyin Olajide at the inaugural launch, the flying public, especially those that fly the Guangzhou route, should expect best-in-class flight experience, which is characteristic of the Air Peace brand.

The Air Peace COO emphasized that, Air Peace is not new to the Chinese airspace as it is familiar with it and had successfully operated several evacuations, special flights to the country at different times in the past, especially in 2020, during the COVID-19 lockdown.

“We’re going into China, not as newcomers, but as an airline that is technically and operationally acclimatised with the Chinese terrain.  We’re not stopping with Guangzhou- India is next and Israel is in the works”.

She stated that, with this feat, Air Peace has kept to its vision of providing seamless connections and expanding existing network to accommodate the evolving air travel needs of the flying public.

“When we set out for the Air Peace trajectory in 2014, we envisaged an airline that would predominantly do two things: create massive employment for Nigerians and reduce the burden of air travel for Nigerians, and by extension, Africans, through the provision of affordable and peaceful connectivity across cities and continents”.

Olajide also disclosed that, plans are underway for subsequent launch to Malabo in Equatorial Guinea and Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo. 

“We will continue to grow our route network as well as modernise our fleet strategically. Air Peace currently boasts of a network of twenty domestic routes, seven regional routes and two international destinations, including Dubai and Johannesburg”.

She thanked the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, the Ministry of Aviation, the Chinese government, partners, and other stakeholders for make the China launch possible. 

“We promise to work harmoniously with all relevant aviation actors to ensure this new route is maximised”.
