Foreign airlines compete with Air Peace for London-Lagos route

Now, other airlines that fly the Lagos-London route are reportedly planning to crash the airfare further below what Air Peace is charging.

Air Peace chairman, Allen Onyema, said the plan is to force the airline out of the scene so Nigerians would pay through their noses to fly to London.

However, an X user, Osi Suave, said there is a solution to the impending competition. He wrote:

"What onyeama needs to do is simple, if they are dropping fares he needs to find a way to market his flights to and fro the UK. He can provide free bus shuttles from central London to Gatwick and back. Increase baggage capacity to 32kg from 23kg. Start a miles redemption Programme that will translate to upgrades and free tickets."

Reactions as Air Peace faces competition

@ikuesan_Debo said:

"He should include connecting flights from Lagos to Cameroon, Ghana and close by African countries that Air Peace goes to from Lagos normally. To attract other African brothers."

@PastorUbz commented:

"Nigerians are just supposed to fly Airpeace out of patriotism. Nigerians should consider these foreign airlines don’t care about them."

@Engr_Series stated:

"Gatwick to Central London is about 1 hour drive, that’s two hours plus return, I don’t think that’s sustainable considering luggage size. Increasing baggage capacity makes more sense but that translates to reduced passengers cos they need to even out the weight. Reward programs seem a lil too early as well."

Man shares happiness over amount Air Peace is charging

Meanwhile, a Nigerian man said he is happy over the price Air Peace is charging for its Lagos to London direct flight.
