Air Peace has delivered the first Boeing 777 to Nigeria

Air Peace has made history as the first airline in Nigeria to own a Boeing 777.

The airline said in a statement signed by its spokesman, Chris Iwarrah, that the development is coming weeks after the airline took delivery of two Embraer 145 aircraft on January 31 and February 9 respectively and made history with the setting up of a subsidiary, Air Peace Hopper, to organise its short-haul operations in line with its no-city-left-behind project.

The 274-capacity aircraft, which touched down at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos at about 3.45 p.m. last Friday, is the first of two Boeing 777 airliners Air Peace recently acquired in preparation for its Dubai, Sharjah, London, Guangzhou-China, Houston, Mumbai and Johannesburg services.

The airline said it is finalizing talks to add two more B777 aircraft to its fleet soon. The airline also added that its indigenous crew has been trained to operate the aircraft with registration number 5N-BVE.

The aircraft was flown in by the Chief Pilot of the airline, Capt. Victor Egonu, and Capt. Simon Donoghue. Speaking on the arrival of the aircraft, Onyema assured Nigerians that Air Peace, which launched its Banjul, Freetown, and Dakar services on February 19, would soon start flights to Dubai, Sharjah, Guangzhou-China, London, Houston, Mumbai and South Africa.
