Air Peace, one of Nigeria’s leading airlines, on Monday set off on a non-stop 11-hour flight from the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos to Jamaica.
This was disclosed in a statement by the airline’s spokesman, Stanley Olisa.
According to Olisa, the airline deployed one of its three Boeing 777 aircraft, with registration number 5N-BVE, which departed at 5 pm conveying 132 passengers on board to Montego Bay, Jamaica.
Olisa stated that it was a special charter flight and was the airline’s maiden flight to the country, explaining that the flight indicated the airline’s capability to operate flights to any destination in the world.
He noted that the aircraft would fly into Montego Bay again on December 27 for a return flight on December 28.
Olisa said, “Air Peace has the aircraft and the requisite manpower to do this.
“Air Peace has operated international flights to multiple destinations such as China, Turkey, India, Malaysia, Israel, United Kingdom, Thailand, and Indonesia.
“Air Peace also recently launched scheduled direct flights to Johannesburg, South Africa, providing respite to travellers on the Lagos-Johannesburg-Lagos route and connecting the two giant African countries at affordable fares.”
