Norse to fly for Air Peace to London

Norse Atlantic Airways has entered into an agreement with Nigerian carrier Air Peace for an ACMI (Aircraft, Crew, Maintenance, and Insurance) charter service on the Lagos to London route.

Commencing in April 2024, the deal is initially for a two-month period, although Norse said there was potential for a longer-term agreement. The charter will operate four times a week. The carrier will be using slots at London/Gatwick previously allocated to Air Peace to facilitate the connection.

Bjørn Tore Larsen, CEO and founder of Norse, said: “We are thrilled to be working with Air Peace to launch this service between Gatwick and Lagos. This collaboration represents an exciting opportunity to leverage Norse Atlantic’s expertise in charter operations to deliver a reliable and high-quality service to Air Peace and their customers.”
