Air Peace (P4, Lagos) aims to launch intercontinental routes to India and Israel later this year amid plans to eventually add London to its network, Chairman, Chief Executive, and founder Allen Onyema told Nigerian media.

"We will start the Mumbai International route by March 2020; and later in the year, we will commence direct flight to Tel Aviv Ben Gurion in Israel. We have been given the right to fly to Tel Aviv. After many years of bilateral relations, Nigeria has not been able to have direct flights to Israel," he said during a press conference, according to Punch magazine.

Onyema added that in the future, Air Peace also intended to fly to London, although he did not reveal any timeline.

The Nigerian carrier launched intercontinental operations in July 2019, when it started flying 3x weekly between Lagos and Sharjah. Otherwise, its network remains limited to regional flights to Accra, Dakar Blaise Diagne International, Freetown, Banjul, and Monrovia Roberts. 86.4% of Air Peace's total weekly scheduled capacity is currently deployed on domestic routes, the ch-aviation capacities module shows.

Last year, Air Peace touted the launch of flights to Johannesburg O.R. Tambo and Guangzhou, although neither route has yet materialised.

There are currently no scheduled direct services from Nigeria to either India or Israel while London is served by British Airways, which flies from London Heathrow to Lagos and Abuja, and Virgin Atlantic, which connects Heathrow with Lagos.

Air Peace operates eight B737-300s, five B737-500s, one B777-200(ER), two B777-300s, one Do328-300, eight E145s, and a B737-800 wet-leased from euroAtlantic Airways. The airline has ten B737-8s and ten E195-E2s on firm orders from the manufacturers, the ch-aviation fleets module shows.
