Air Peace Introduces Special Student Fares, Bolsters Competition on London Route


Ahead of its March 30, London launch, Air Peace Airlines announces plans to offer special student fares, catering to student travelers.

Chairman Allen Onyema disclosed this during the Airline’s travel agents forum for the London launch.

Emphasizing affordability and accessibility, Onyema aims to reconnect families and enable students to travel during breaks.

He reassures parents that the new fares will ease financial burdens and facilitate family connections.

“My children all schooled abroad and we insist that they return to Nigeria during their school breaks no matter how short. This is to enable us remain connected to our children and ensure they stick to our values and culture. I know this is also the desire of several other parents but this desire has been cut short because of high fares.

“This narrative will changed as soon as Air Peace resumes flights to London,” the chairman assured.

Onyema’s motivation stems from a desire to provide Nigerians with better travel options and alleviate high fares.

The move aligns with Air Peace’s mission to create jobs and serve the Nigerian populace.

While exact fares remain undisclosed, Onyema guarantees they will undercut legacy airlines’ prices.

Currently, economy class return tickets from Nigeria to London can cost up to N1.6 million.

Air fares have surged over 400% due to trapped funds and foreign exchange rate fluctuations.

Air Peace’s London flights mark a significant milestone, introducing Nigeria’s own carrier to the market.

Bankole Bernard of IATA praises Air Peace’s entry, foreseeing balance in the aviation sector.

“There will be a bit of balance. Air Peace has been given a daily slot to Gatwick which amounts to seven frequencies, compared to 21 frequencies that the legacy airlines have; 14 in Lagos and seven in Abuja. To an extend, we have something that will balance it up.

Oluwatoyin Olajide, COO of Air Peace, highlights the historic significance of the London route.

“Operating daily, this service will also offer several other benefits which give Air Peace an edge over the competition. It’s a direct flight without stop-overs and offers unbeatable fares.

Operated with Boeing 777 and 787 aircraft, the service promises efficiency and comfort.

The airline plans to offer daily flights, direct routes, and attractive promotional fares to travelers.

Air Peace’s expansion reflects its commitment to connecting cities and fostering economic growth across nations.
