Nigerian leading carrier, Air Peace said its flight into Heathrow Airport on Sunday where the airline evacuated 327 Nigerians from London back to Nigeria is a demonstration of its vibrancy and capacity to fly to any destination across the globe with necessary government support.
The airline deployed Boeing 777 aircraft with registration number 5N-BWI for the flight into Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja and the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos.
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 the airline 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 operated a series of ‘special flights’ to and from different countries, including China, Turkey, India, Israel and South Africa.
