AirPeace airline has been commended and showered with applause by the Nigerian Ambassador to The Gambia Professor Oluwasegun Ibidapo-Ope, and the Minister in the Embassy of Nigeria, Dakar, Senegal, Mr. Lot Egopija, for the it resolve and commitment to link Nigeria to the rest of Africa and the World.

During its inaugural flights to The Gambia, Dakar, Senegal and Freetown, Sierra Leone, Nigeria’s Ambassador to the Gambia, Professor Ibidapo-Obe said the coming of Air Peace would strengthen bilateral relations and boost socio-economic activities of both countries.

The ambassador noted that the country had a lot of potential that was waiting to be tapped by Nigerians, and expressed optimism that this would improve due to the connectivity being provided by Air Peace.

Also, Mr Lot Egopija, Minister in the Embassy of Nigeria, Dakar, said one of the main agenda of ECOWAS was to bridge the gap among its member states and AirPeace had taken the bull by its horns to put Nigeria first.

Egopija said: “So Air Peace coming into Dakar is to create access to the people of both countries and also to further the ECOWAS agreement.

“Nigeria has Bi-lateral Air Service Agreements (BASAs) with many nations and having a population of 180 million people, it is a good way of ensuring Nigerians have access to these people and also their businesses.

“Many people have preconceived notions about Nigeria and I hope that Air Peace will be able to allay their fears by connecting them to the country to see our vast potentialities.”

Receiving the Air Peace delegation at the Freetown International Airport, Lungi, Mr Balogun Koroma, the Minister of Transportation, Sierra Leone, commended the airline for extending operations to the country.

“We are looking for in-flight quality service, on-time service and adherence to our local content laws in terms of employing our people; and Air Peace has given us the assurance that they would adher to that, “Koroma said.

At the Banjul International Airport, Mr Abdoulie Colley, Director of Operations, Gambian Airport Authority, assured Air Peace of the needed support to ensure hitch free operations in the country.

Responding to various comments made during the visit to the three countries, the Chairman of Air Peace, Mr Allen Onyema, said the airline was committed to unlocking the economies of Africa, offer air travelers on business and leisure trips seamless connectivity, as well as create jobs for the people.

He noted that seamless air connectivity is pivotal to the socio-economic development of countries within the Economic Community For West African States (ECOWAS) sub-region.
