Aviation Ministry Gives Approval To  Air Peace To Begin International Flights To New York’s JFK Airport

The Ministry of Aviation and Aerospace Development has given express approval to Air Peace to commence international flights to and from John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, USA.

This latest development comes after Air Peace submitted a request to the ministry on January 12, 2024, seeking approval for flights to New York.

In a letter dated February 9, 2024, the ministry, represented by director H.T. Ejibunu, conveyed the approval to Air Peace. The letter, referencing number FMA/ATMD/0186/S.5/X/696, highlighted that the approval aligns with the existing ‘Open Skies’ agreement between Nigeria and the United States.

Kennedy International Airport, New York, United States of America,” the letter stated.

Air Peace was advised to coordinate with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the United States for necessary documentation before commencing operations. 

The airline was also instructed to comply with Nigeria Civil Aviation Regulations (CARs) 2023 part 18.5.11 and liaise with the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) to fulfill requirements.

Currently, Air Peace operates regional and international flights, and some of the airline’s routes include Cameroon (Douala), Gambia, Ghana (Accra), Liberia (Monrovia), Senegal (Dakar), Sierra Leone, Togo, India, South Africa (Johannesburg), and Cote d’ivoire and now US.
