The Nigerian government has granted an airliner, Air Peace, a license to operate international flights from southeast city of Enugu to China and other areas, an official said Thursday.

The recognition would open a new vista in the economy of the state, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, the state governor during the closing ceremony of the First Enugu Investment Summit.

The governor said by approving the license of the airline, President Muhammadu Buhari had shown himself as having the interest of all sections of the country at heart.

Ugwuanyi said the state would never be the same again having had a successful summit that attracted investors across the world. "We have not only showcased the vast potentials in the state, but from reactions of participants, it does appear that we have been able to provoke an unprecedented interest from investors across the world," he added.

Earlier in his presentation, the Chairman of Air Peace Ltd, Allen Onyema, said the airline would soon commence flights from the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu to China.

The chairman said it was time for Nigeria to be a hub for West and Central African sub-regions.

"President Muhammadu Buhari in his magnanimity on March 31, 2016 approved for us the right to fly to five different countries and we decided now to make Enugu State the hub," he said. Onyema said Air Peace would fly to India, United Arab Emirates, South Africa, Atlanta in the U.S. and China, adding that the China flight would commence in a few months.

"There is no other airline in West and Central Africa that flies direct to China," he added.

"We will use our airline to bring passengers from countries in West and Central Africa to Enugu and move them to China," Onyema said.

"We are going to deploy a cargo plane that will do nonstop flights to Enugu," Onyema said

The Enugu-Atlanta route could be a goldmine for the airline if it does proper marketing, and offers superior in-flight customer service.
Its good news to know that, very soon, Nigerians would be able to travel directly from the US to the SS/SE part of the country.

Air Peace should use the B787 or B777 for the estimated 12hr 40 min flight time between Enugu and Atlanta, USA, because both planes can cover the 6,084.84 nautical mile (9,792.58km) journey without refueling.

Lol
Air Peace would have to lease/buy more airplanes for the 5 international routes. At least 4 additional planes should suffice

I hope & pray the Nigerian factor never sets in! 2x I traveled with them, no complaint.

One of the journeys, I was with an infant & one of them offered to carry my bag to the lounge..had to be convincing that I could manage!!

Dana is cool too, that crash really dented their image but it didn't detract from their service delivery!!

Arik don miss way tey tey, people are just managing them!!!!

Eeyan mi, Money answereth all things & despise not humble beginnings. wink

Airline biz is not for the faint hearted, with the right policy & solid repayment projection in place, securing financing to acquire more aircrafts won't be be a problem..

For you to even fly international routes according to NCAA, you must have proven years of record in the aviation industry by first flying regional, the continent, before flying international....these are the stages in the flight business....

To even imagine that the best aircraft they have is Boeing 737-500 series(classics) which has been phased out in most countries....and same aircraft would now be deplored to fly to other countries??

I wish them well

Haba! No sane airline would deploy that outdated plane on international routes. They will get some more modern machines for their new routes; just like Medview had to lease a B767 for their Lagos-London Gatwick flights
