A domestic carrier, Air Peace, has commenced daily flights to Accra, Ghana, joining Arik and Med-View on the route.
The management of the airline said the Lagos-Accra flight would set the pace for flight services to other West African countries as well as other international routes.
The inaugural flight arrived at Kotoka International Airport, Accra with the airline’s ambassador, Kingsley Okonkwo, popularly known as Kcee, on board; while the Nigeria’s High Commissioner to Ghana, Mrs. Adekunbi Sonaike-Ayodeji, and other officials as well as aviation authorities in the country were at the airport to receive the guests.
The Chief Operating Officer of the airline, Mrs. Oluwatoyin Olajide, said Air Peace inaugurated the new regional route to open a new chapter in its flight operations.
She said the airline considered it a great privilege to be given the opportunity to provide seamless air travel between Ghana and Nigeria and to help individuals and businesses connect their destinations with ease.
“We promise not to lower the high standards we have been known for since we started operations. We are in Ghana to offer nothing but the best air travel experience and treat our customers with the greatest respect. We will continue to deepen the quality of our team in the days ahead. We will continue to honour our promise to place a non-negotiable premium on the comfort and safety of our valued customers,” she said.
Sonaike-Ayodeji said the new flight service would boost economic and trade relations between Nigeria and Ghana, adding that “if there is anything foreign affairs has always been doing, it is to promote bilateral relations.”
