Nigerian airlines, including Air Peace, are gearing up to launch flights to the United States soon.


This development comes as the Federal Government grants permissions and ramps up efforts to support local operators in expanding their international reach.


Recently, the Minister of Aviation, Festus Keyamo, vowed to further crash the prices of international flights, explaining that measures have been taken to ensure local operators take full control of international routes in no distant future.


A representative of the Airline Operators of Nigeria, anonymously confirmed to that Air Peace has been recently granted the right to fly to the US, adding that other airlines are also in the consideration process.


Chief Operating Officer of United Nigeria Airlines, Osita Okonkwo, also asserted that his airline is prepared, pointing out that securing slots and permits from US authorities is the main hurdle.
