Air Peace on Monday operated a direct flight from Murtala Muhammed Lagos International Airport to the island nation of Jamaica.
In a statement from the airline’s spokesman, Mr. Stanley Olise, the airline said Tuesday that one of its three Boeing 777 aircraft with registration number 5N-BVE was scheduled for an 11-hour flight that took off at 5pm with 132 passengers.
The plane, which arrived in Montego Bay, Jamaica, is scheduled to fly to the island nation again on December 27 for a return trip the next day.
In a statement titled “Air Peace operates a direct, direct flight to Jamaica,” Olisa explained that it was a special charter flight and the airline’s first flight to the island.
He said the flight further emphasized the airline’s ability to operate flights to any destination in the world, adding that “Air Peace has an aircraft and the manpower needed to do so.”
Air Peace recently operated international flights to multiple destinations such as China, Turkey, India, Malaysia, Israel, the United Kingdom, Thailand, Indonesia and last week launched regular direct flights to Johannesburg in South Africa.
