One of Nigeria’s leading carrier, Air Peace has announced plans to commence daily flights from Lagos to Kaduna from August 13 as part of its no-city-left-behind project.
The airline had earlier announced commencement of its four weekly flights from Lagos, Abuja and Accra to Monrovia with effect from August 6.
A statement issued by the airline’s Corporate Communications Manager, Mr. Chris Iwarah, said the carrier was pleased to connect and unite the South and North of Nigeria by air.
Air Peace, which recently secured the renewal of its International Air Transport Association Operation Safety Audit (IOSA) certificate, said broadening its route network in the North of Nigeria aligned with its determination to democratise flying experience, give hope to unserved and underserved destinations as well as positively impact the economies of destinations where it operates.
The carrier assured that many more domestic routes, including Makurdi, Warri and Port Harcourt NAF Base, would soon join its network under its no-city-left-behind project. Air Peace also confirmed that it would shortly reopen its Asaba and Sokoto operations.
“We are delighted to announce that Kaduna will reflect on our route map starting from Monday, August 13, 2018, just exactly a week after commencement of our four weekly flights from Lagos, Abuja and Accra to Monrovia.
“The launch of our daily flights from Lagos to Kaduna is a pleasing consolidation of our pledge to connect and unite Nigeria by air. We are convinced beyond any shadow of doubt that Nigeria stands to gain socially and economically if the North and South are seamlessly connected by air.”
