Due to increased demand, Nigerian airline Air Peace has announced that it will be adding more capacity to its Lagos-London route.

This was made public on Wednesday through the airline’s official Facebook page.

Travellers interested in using Air Peace to fly to London now have more options to select from as there are more seats available.

The statement said, “We have decided to increase the capacity on the route due to the overwhelming demand and interest in our London route.” In other words, there are now more seats available.


“Air Peace would like to express its gratitude to the Nigerian community for their support, both in Nigeria and the UK. We value it highly and will continue to do our best to make the whole country proud.”

The airline conducted its inaugural flight to London with 260 passengers aboard a Boeing 777, which has a capacity of 274 seats, on Saturday. The route will be served daily from Lagos.

The move has disrupted market dynamics, prompting foreign airlines that previously enjoyed exclusivity on the route to reconsider their pricing strategies.

The Chief Executive Officer of Air Peace, Allen Onyema, revealed that tickets for Lagos-London flights with his company were sold out until September.

During an interview with Arise TV on Monday, Onyema stated that the airline currently possesses over 30 aircraft and has placed orders for an additional 33.

He emphasised that Air Peace aims to expand its fleet to over 60 aircraft.
