Air Peace (P4, Lagos) took delivery of its first of 13 firm-ordered E195-E2s, although it has yet to ferry the aircraft back to Nigeria.

5N-BYF (msn 19020039) was formally handed over to the Nigerian carrier on January 27, 2021, at Embraer's site at Sao Jose dos Campos.

"The E195-E2 is the perfect aircraft to expand our domestic and regional operations... The E195-E2 aircraft will further help us actualise our ambition of connecting not just the whole of Nigeria, but the entire African continent, while feeding long-haul flights from our Lagos hub," Chairman and Chief Executive Allan Onyema said.

Besides a further twelve units on firm order, the Nigerian carrier also holds purchase rights for seventeen additional regional jets. According to the ch-aviation fleets advanced module, the carrier also operates eight E145s (operated by its regional division Air Peace Hopper), one Do328-300 for VIP charters, eight B737-300s, five B737-500s, one B777-200(ER), and two B777-300(ER)s.

Air Peace will become the second operator of the E2 aircraft since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, following Belavia (B2, Minsk National) which took its first E195-E2 in December 2020.
