Privately-owned indigenous airline, Air Peace, has extended its business to Benin, in Edo State to cater for travelers on that route.
The latest move by the airline will break long-time monopoly on the route, thus availing air travelers more options.
At the maiden trip of the airline to Benin Airport, passengers were treated to a wow experience even as they pledged their continued loyalty to the brand.
Speaking on behalf of the passengers, Mrs. Elizabeth Ohonba said that her acquaintance with the airline allayed her fear of flying locally and commended the company on the development which she said would put an end to the monopoly enjoyed by the few operators on the route.
According to Air Peace Chairman, Chief Allen Onyema, the airline would continue to thrive even when the business appeared to be unattractive, adding that he was committed to ensuring that the brand sustained its exceptional service delivery it was known for.
It would be recalled that the airline made an entry into the nation’s aviation industry in 2014 with a strong presence in Enugu, Calabar, Owerri, Abuja, Lagos, Port Harcourt and now Benin. Another feather was added to its cap recently when it was granted permit by the Federal government to fly international destinations including China and West Africa Sub region.
