Air Peace gets operational boost with another Embraer 145 aircraft

AIR PEACE has taken delivery of a new ERJ-145 aircraft, with registration number 5N-BXG, to help boost its domestic and regional operations.

The aircraft arrived the Murtala Muhammed International Airport at about 19.30hrs on Wednesday, March 4, 2020, from Morocco.

Disclosing this to Newsmen, Senior Communications Executive of the airline, Mr. Stanley Olisa, stated that the new arrival is a 50-seater jet.

He declared, “Air Peace is very happy to announce the arrival of its seventh Embraer 145 Jet, which has been undergoing routine checks in Morocco”.

Olisa, who restated the airline’s determination to ease the burden of travel in Nigeria and beyond, noted that the airline now has 27 aircraft in its fleet. In his words: ”With this latest ERJ-145, we now have 27 aircraft. Do not forget that we’re still expecting some of the Embraer 195-E2 Jets we ordered last year”.

The airline’s image-maker assured the flying public that the airline is poised to interconnect various cities in the country and promised more domestic and international routes like Johannesburg, London, Houston and Mumbai.

It would be recalled that Air Peace, West and Central Africa’s largest airline, last year, at the Dubai Airshow, signed an order for 3 E195-E2 Jets. This is in addition to the 10 earlier ordered. With these orders from Embraer, the airline became the launch customer of this type of aircraft in Africa.
