Air Peace becomes first Nigerian airline to fly to Antigua, Barbuda


Air Peace has again achieved another milestone by being the first Nigerian airline to operate a nonstop, direct flight to Antigua and Barbuda in the Caribbeans.

The airline’s Boeing 777 aircraft with Registration Number 5N-BW1 departed the Murtala Muhammed International Airport around 14:00hrs on August 5, 2023 on a special business trip to Antigua and Barbuda.

Stanley Olisa, spokesperson of Air Peace, disclosed that the flight concretises the airline’s relationship with the government of Antigua and Barbuda and signals more possibilities of socio-economic payoffs for Nigeria and the Caribbean nation.

Noting that the flight is not an inaugural flight, Olisa stated that Air Peace is looking to commence scheduled commercial flights into the two-island country and wants Nigerian investors to see the investment opportunities that abound in Antigua and Barbuda, especially in the area of tourism, and factoring her conducive business environment.

Olisa added that tourism is a major revenue earner for Antigua and Barbuda and hinted that the special flight which departed on Saturday is a 4-day trip featuring a key business conference for strategic discourses on investment opportunities, networking and other planned recreational activities around the Antigua Carnival.

It can be recalled that in the last couple of months, there have been media reports about Air Peace being in high-level talks with the government of Antigua and Barbuda over aviation investment in their country. This flight to Antigua confirms these news publications.

  1. An investment junket during a holiday weekend? Thats a different way of conducting business.

  2. This news release is for fools only.

    It is filled with unrealistic predictions, and false puffery.

    The only item of fact: is that the airline arrived with passengers.

  3. The entire island is preoccupied with the carnival festivities. So what is being hidden in plain sight here?

  4. welcome our brothers and sisters from the MOTHERLAND! Enjoy the festivities and beautiful Antigua.

  5. @Party…well put!…and they’re leaving tomorrow!
    Did anyone of importance meet this group at the airport?
    They supposedly brought cultural performers, where are they performing?
    Where is everyone staying?
    Was there an official reception with the ‘movers and shakers’ of AB?
    Come on people…get real…the Syrian powerhouses that rules business in this country will never allow Africans in…not even at their back door.

  6. Welcome to Antigua! I hope the lady in the wig left her supercharged skin bleach at home. Polluting our water is a no no.

    • Me know @ Welcome. I thought using bleach on your skin was banned a long time ago?! She look like a damn day ghost. Scary as hell and downright dangerous!

      Why would you want to look white, when you born a beautiful Mahogany. Tarl!

      As the popular reggae tune goes:


  7. Ignorance at the highest level @Welcome. She has a full face of makeup and is naturally light skinned as a large percentage of Nigerians are without bleaching

    Unlike your orange and black-knuckled fiends here 🤣😂

  8. There is some truth to the article it is not an inaugural flight. Thought they were here to enjoy the festival. Does it mean we can now go to enjoy the richness of the Motherland at a cheaper and better rate especially Nigeria. Let’s hope they presented our leader with some truth pills. God bless Antigua.
