West and Central Africa’s leading airline, Air Peace, has launched direct, nonstop flight services to Mumbai, the capital city of Maharashtra State in Southwestern India.
The airline is starting with two weekly flight frequencies to Mumbai, with plans to commence Delhi operations as soon as the Mumbai service garners significant momentum.
This direct, nonstop Mumbai service is a respite to Nigerians and Indians who have to travel for so many hours to India with stopovers via other countries.
The Chief Operating Officer of Air Peace, Oluwatoyin Olajide said, “The Mumbai route is our fourth international destination and is strongly indicative of our unwavering commitment to continually expand our route network to meet the evolving travel needs of not only the Nigerian market but also the West African sub-region.”
She said the airline was strengthening its presence on the Asian continent with the launch of Mumbai service. She added that it is not just a big stride for the airline; but also a huge feat for Nigeria in the implementation of its Bilateral Air Services Agreement (BASA) with India, and deepening socio-economic ties between both countries.
