Air Peace on Sunday evacuated 327 Nigerians from London in a Boeing
777, with registration number 5N-BWI, demonstrating its vibrancy and
capacity to fly to any destination across the globe.
The aircraft took off from Heathrow Airport London and arrived at the
Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport at 20:41hrs, Nigerian time. After
disembarking some passengers in Abuja, the aircraft proceeded to the
Murtala Muhammed International Airport Lagos.
 commenting on the development, Air Peace Spokesperson, Stanley Olisa,
expressed gratitude to the federal government, especially the Nigerian
Embassy in London, for choosing Air Peace to conduct the flight.
He added that the flight was significant to the airline as it gave an
opportunity to further show its capability for long-haul flights.
“We’re delighted to have operated this flight. It unmistakably shows
that Air Peace can fly to anywhere in the world, given the required
support of the government”, Olisa asserted.
Since March when the Federal Government banned flight operations
across the country as a measure to help mitigate the spread of
COVID-19, Air Peace has been operating series of ‘special flights’ to
and from different countries, including China, Turkey, India, Israel
and South Africa.
According to the airline, “More of such flights are in the offing”.
IT would be recalled that the Airline recently conducted a successful
test flight in readiness for reopening of the Industry soon.
