Air Peace to resume flights to Banjul

Air Peace has announced it will resume flights operations to Banjul and Dakar.

The airline had suspended its regional routes following the outbreak of Covid-19 and the lockdown across several countries.

In a statement on Wednesday, Stanley Olisa, the airline’s spokesman, said the flights would resume operation on July 23.

Olisa said the Air Peace Lagos-Banjul-Dakar flight resumption would offer more regional connectivity on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

“The Dakar and Banjul routes will be operated with our ultramodern Embraer 195-E2 aircraft,” the statement reads.

“We shall resume more routes and increase frequencies to other destinations as we take delivery of more brand new E195-E2s, as well as our other aircraft undergoing maintenance abroad.”

Olisa said the airline is now resuming other regional routes following the restoration of the Accra route in March.

The spokesman added that Air Peace would also launch daily flights to Gombe from Lagos and Abuja on August 9.

In November 2020, Air Peace expanded its flight operations to Jamaica and had the intention to resume regional and international trips by December same year.
