In a statement by the spokesman of Air Peace, Mr. Chris Iwarah, the COO assured that the airline would deliver exceptional flight experience to residents of Benue and others travelling on the Makurdi route.
The route will be serviced by an Embraer 145 jet under Air Peace Hopper, the airline’s subsidiary.
The flights to Benue will terminate at the Nigerian Air Force Base, Makurdi.
The operations, Olajide confirmed, would cover Abuja-Makurdi-Abuja and Lagos-Makurdi-Lagos.
The Chief of Staff who represented the state governor, Chief Samuel Ortom, said the government was grateful to Air Peace for accepting its proposal to fly to Makurdi.
