President Muhammadu Buhari has approved International direct flights by Air Peace to Dubai, Mumbai, Johannesburg, Atlanta and Guangzhou.
Chief Executive Officer of the airline, Allen Onyema, disclosed this at the Enugu Investment Summit holding in Enugu, South East Nigeria.
The airline announced that the Akanu Ibiam International Airport in Enugu will be its hub airport, adding that all direct flights and maintenance will take place in Enugu.
Mr. Onyema told the summit that cargo flight operations from the airport in Enugu will commence immediately while flights to China will start very shortly.
International flight operations began at the airport in August 2013, under Stella Oduah as the Minister of Aviation, with Ethiopian Airlines operating the only flight from the airport.
The commencement of direct international flights from the airport by Peace Air, to the US, India, South Africa and China, is considered as a massive boost to the socio-economic status of the South Eastern part of Nigeria.
