Air Peace airlifts Pharaohs of Egypt to Asaba for clash with Eagles

AIR PEACE on Sunday airlifted Egyptian national team, the Pharaohs from Niamey, Niger Republic to Asaba in Delta State for a friendly match with the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

The airline, which is currently pursuing a vigorous network expansion project on the West Coast of Africa, has become very popular on the Accra, Freetown, Monrovia, Dakar and Banjul routes.

Air Peace says its vision is to create seamless flight connectivity, assuring that it would soon expand its regional flight network to at least nine routes, including Niamey.

The Boeing 737-500 aircraft operated by Captain Remilekun Etta, First Officer Callistus Ifeanyi and their crew lifted a total of 114 passengers on the entourage of the Egyptian team.

Speaking on the development, Air Peace Corporate Communications Manager, Mr. Chris Iwarah said it was a vote of confidence in the quality of the carrier’s flight operations.

He assured that the airline would continue to make Nigeria proud in Africa with its regional flights. He added that Air Peace would soon prove to the world that Nigeria had something valuable to offer in aviation with its long-haul flights to Sharjah, Dubai, London, Guangzhou, Houston, Mumbai and Johannesburg launching soon.

“We are quite pleased with the acceptance of Air Peace at all destinations we currently operate to. Air Peace is now the airline of choice in Nigeria and on the West Coast of Africa. This boldly speaks to the quality of our flight operations.

“We are on a mission to bring Nigeria and Africa honour. Soon, we will be on a number of international routes to offer quality alternative. We are resolute on sustaining the high standards of our flight operations. We always insist on global parameters in all aspects of our operations. We urge the flying public to keep believing in us to deliver nothing but the best flight experience to them at all times,” Iwarah said.
