Air Peace Plans Commencement Of Flights To New York, Houston by ijustdey: 10:41am On Apr 02
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Air Peace Airlines, Mr. Allen Onyema, yesterday, disclosed that the airline was planning to begin flights to New York and Houston by the end of 2024.

Onyema, who was a guest on ‘The Morning Show’ on ARISE News Channel, spoke on the backdrop of the airline’s Lagos- London route launch.

He stated that the company was in the process of purchasing more aircraft for this purpose.

According to him, “Air Peace is ready and prepared to take on more flights. Already, there are seven Air Peace flights going into Gatwick Airport from Nigeria daily.

Nigeria has a balance of about 14 to do. We are ready, if the government gives us Abuja-London, I will do it, because we are expecting more aircraft into the country purchased by Air Peace. If we get it, we will do it.

The airline, he added, was planning to hit New York or Houston towards the end of the year, as it was working on bringing in more 777s.

As I speak to you, my staff are in California, the engineering technical services department, are in California inspecting some three 777s we want to acquire and buy. So, if we could get them in the next two or three months, then of course, we are good to go anywhere,” he added.

Onyema, however, emphasised on some of the challenges faced by his airline in trying to achieve the long-awaited Lagos-London flights.

He said: “You suffer what I call both internal and external conspiracies. It took us seven years. We got the designation I think about six and a half years ago to go into London. Since then, it has been cat-and-mouse game.

“We actually procured our three 777s because of this route, not for any other route. However, we were not allowed to go.

“Whether you like it or not, there is what is called international aero politics which is very dirty. We applied for the TCO. TCO means Technical Country Operators permit, you must get that one before you start going into any European country, UK inclusive. “And the TCO organisation from Europe wrote our Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA). Do you know Air Peace? Do you know about their designation? And we were denied. My own country denied us, so they threw it back.”

Onyema, called for the support of the federal government for Nigerian airlines saying, “In our own country, what we are pleading; I like when you said support, the ease of doing business, let them even do that for the indigenous airlines and see us blossom, instead of badmouthing these airlines that pass through all manner of problems.”

“My own country denied us” - Allen Onyema

Recent revelations have shown that Nigeria is indeed a crime scene!

Government will deliberately prevent development from happening just so the people are easier to control and manipulate

I see why some people believe they’ll be better off if left alone

This is the time for their staffers to start "disappearing" immediately the planes land in the United States. Our leaders and their apologists have reduced us to nothing.

Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has been supportive and Allen Onyema has been grateful as well.

Airpeace is a National pride and this breakthrough is a plus to the government of Jagaban.

God bless Nigeria

Awesome! Well-done team Airpeace.

Some disgusting tribalist would soon decend on this thread to start spewing rubbish.

Some will complain about the "Isi agu" outfit, others will shout about how their tribe is the greatest.

Ignorant people; they think they can exist in isolation.

If you like be Yoruba, Igbo, Hausa, Fulani, Ijaw etc , your tribe alone cannot sustain your business.
We all need each other's patronage to grow.

It will be great if he can start these routes. Delta and United need serious competition.

Exactly
A lot of these people are pretending as if they do not know that this man is still wanted by the FBI. The Federal government of Nigeria have just decided to look the other way. Imagine if it's Dangote that's wanted like Oyenma. The biased Nigerian press and social media will remind us everytime they talk about him. But now, you can hardly find that conversation anywhere.
Also, these people don't understand that Air peace cannot fly anywhere without thr consent, approval and support from the Nigerian govt.
The govt can decide to give the slots allocated to Nigeria through bilateral agreement to any other airline even if they don't use it.

Some people are waiting to see clothes they will wear. Very ridiculous people.

Tribal bigots are no better than apes. Some of them are just lucky to be able to read and write and have access to internet enabled devices. Natural selection will fade them out eventually because they cannot survive in an egalitarian society. The crumbs they're feeding on will eventually dry out.

Lol ask how FG would've extradite him easily if you don't know stop trying to defend what you don't know....



When Buruji had issues with US on drugs you can see how OBJ was trying to extradite him that he has to start going from one court to another....


If FG isn't supporting Oyema even if his not in US yet he will be facing different Lawsuits in Nigeria right now to extradite him to US....
