Air Peace Expands International Operations with Abuja-London Route, Enhancing Competition and Fairness in Aviation Sector

Nigeria’s leading airline, Air Peace, has announced its expansion into international markets with the launch of a new route from Abuja to London, following approval from the Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo. This strategic move marks a significant milestone for the local aviation sector and enhances fairness in international air travel between Nigeria and the United Kingdom.

The new route follows the successful inauguration of Air Peace’s direct flights from Lagos to Gatwick Airport in London on March 30, 2024, which was part of a reciprocal action against the previously lopsided Bilateral Air Service Agreement (BASA) between Nigeria and the UK.

Air Peace’s entry into the international market has sparked competition among carriers, leading to reduced ticket prices. Previously, international flight tickets on the Lagos-London route reached highs of N3.5 million. However, with Air Peace setting the return economy class ticket price at N1.2 million, major foreign airlines such as British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, and Qatar Airways have been compelled to reduce their prices to remain competitive.

This development is expected to boost Nigeria’s aviation sector, promote economic growth, and enhance the country’s global connectivity. The expansion also demonstrates Air Peace’s commitment to providing affordable and efficient air travel services to Nigerians and international travelers alike.
