Nigeria’s leading airline, Air Peace, has commenced transit flights through the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos to various regional and international cities, thus using the facility as operational hub.
This, the company said, will enhance connectivity and enable the airline to bring passengers from different parts of West and Central Africa and airlift them to farther destinations like India, China, Jeddah and others.
“This was made possible by the collaborative effort between the airline and the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) and this would be the first transit hub in Nigeria and at Murtala Muhammed International Airport Lagos, “Air Peace said.
According to the airline, the transit international flights are: Accra-Mumbai-Accra, Accra-Jeddah-Accra, Accra-Johannesburg-Accra, Dakar-Jeddah and Dakar-Mumbai. The transit regional flights are: Accra-Freetown-Accra, Accra-Douala-Accra, Monrovia-Lome-Monrovia, Accra-Dakar-Accra, Lome-Accra-Lome and Accra-Banjul-Accra.
“Now, passengers from other countries can fly Air Peace to international and regional destinations by converging in Lagos from where they are flown to those other destinations seamlessly without leaving the airport, “the airline said.
