Ai Peace is a Nigerian airline that offers both scheduled passenger and charter flights across Nigeria and beyond. The airline is based at Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos (LOS), and flies domestically within Nigeria but also offers a small number of international services to other parts of Africa. Popular domestic routes include Lagos to Kano, Lagos to Benin City, and Lagos to Abuja, while some of its international services connect Lagos to cities like Sharjah, Johannesburg and Accra, among others. Although many of its international destinations are still within its long-term route network, it has temporarily suspended a number of its flights, both domestic and international.
Air Peace has a long-term goal to expand its route network to fly to more destinations within Nigeria, as well as major cities internationally. The airline has stated that along with giving Nigeria better connectivity across the world, one of the major ideas behind the genesis of Air Peace is to create more jobs for people in Nigeria.
