Posted 23 July 2019 · Add Comment

Sharjah Airport recently received Air Peace’s inaugural flight from Lagos.

 

It is the Nigerian airline’s first international airport outside Africa.

Ali Salim Al Midfa, chairman of Sharjah Airport Authorities  said: “We welcome the arrival of Nigeria’s Air Peace, which operates flights from Sharjah Airport as a hub and destination.”

He added: “The Emirate of Sharjah is attracting a growing number of tourists and businessmen from various African destinations including Nigeria. These flights will help to position Sharjah as a centre for tourism, culture and business, attracting more tourists from Africa to Sharjah.”

Allen Onyema, Air Peace’s chairman and CEO, said: “We thank the officials of Sharjah Airport Authority and the employees at the Airport for the great support they have provided to Air Peace and for facilitating all procedures necessary to start operating flights to Sharjah.

“Air Peace operates flights to Accra, Freetown, Banjul and Dakar in Africa. The Emirate of Sharjah is the airline’s first destination outside Africa. We hope that it will be a central hub for the airline’s global reach, especially as Sharjah’s strategic location is ideal.”

The company seeks to capitalise on the growing demand for travel to and from Sharjah by operating 3 flights per week on a Boeing 777, departing from Sharjah Airport at 8:00 am on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays and arriving at Lagos International Airport.
