Nigerian carrier and West Africa’s leading airline, Air Peace has thrown its wide-body Boeing 777 aircraft into the stiff competition in the airline business.
The airline recently made history as the first Nigerian carrier to fully acquire the B777 and register it in the country. Air Peace has started doing demonstration flights as part of the strict safety regulation for putting the aircraft into its service.
The non-revenue operations began with a flight to Dakar, Senegal. It continues today (Saturday) with a flight to Sharjah, UAE. Air Peace has also planned demonstration flights to Johannesburg, Freetown, Port Harcourt and Kano, with officials of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority on board to rate the performance of its flight and cabin crew.
The airline has acquired four Boeing 777 aircraft for its international flights to destinations including Johannesburg, Guangzhou-China, London, Houston, Mumbai, Dubai and Sharjah.
