Air Peace has announced the commencement of direct flights from Lagos and Kano to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on October 31, 2023.
The airline disclosed this during an engagement session with travel agents last week in Kano State. The airline said the flight route, which will be between Lagos-Abuja and Kano-Jeddah, will operate three days every week.
Speaking at the parley, the chief operating officer of Air Peace, Oluwatoyin Olajide, stressed that the connectivity would be direct using the luxury Boeing 777.
Olajide, who was represented by the ground operations manager, Air Peace, Ayodeji Adeyemi, applauded the travel agents and restated the airline’s commitment to working with them to ensure that the new route is maximized for everyone to enjoy the payoffs.
“In the first half of this year, we launched two major international destinations—Mumbai and Tel Aviv—and now we are gearing up for Jeddah next month. This does not only signal growth and expansion for the airline, but it also demonstrates our firm commitment to reducing the burden associated with connecting cities with stopovers. We promise direct connectivity, and this is evident in our international route network. We offer direct flights at affordable fares”, Adeyemi said.
The vice president of the National Association of Nigerian Travel Agencies (NANTA), Northern Zone, Abdulrazak Ibrahim, commended Air Peace for the planned Jeddah route and reaffirmed their support while also urging the airline to keep blazing the trail in driving route connectivity across domestic and international cities.
