In a statement on Tuesday by Air Peace spokesman, Mr. Stanley Olisa, the airline operated a direct flight from Murtala Muhammed International Airport Lagos to the Island country of Jamaica.

The airline said that one of its three Boeing 777 aircraft with registration number 5N-BVE was deployed for the 11-hour flight which departed at 5pm with 132 passengers on board. The aircraft which arrived Montego Bay, Jamaica is expected to fly again into the island country on December 27 for a return trip the next day.
