Fly Mid Africa launches flights to five destinations

May 17, 2017: The Gambia's national carrier, Fly Mid Africa, will commence its services from Banjul, the Gambian capital with onward connections to Dakar in Senegal, Freetown in Sierra Leone, Accra in Ghana and Lagos, Nigeria.

The airline has appointed aviation and travels collaboration with Peacock Aviation Services, as its general sales agent in Nigeria. Consequently, Peacock has commenced ticket sales in its international head office in Ikeja, Lagos and across all its offices in Nigeria, namely, Marina (Lagos) Abuja, Ibadan, Aba, Port Harcourt, Benin and Kano.

According to a joint statement by Fly Mid Africa and Peacock Aviation, the new flight options were to address the connectivity challenges faced by business and leisure travellers. The flight services to and from Lagos will be four times a week.

Finalising all operational and commercial arrangements for flight operations, the services will be operated with two Boeing 737-Classic aircraft; B737-300 (8 Business Class and 124 Economy Class seats) and B737-400 (16 Business Class and 116 Economy Class seats).

Bakary Nyassi, managing director, Fly Mid Africa, said, “Fly Mid Africa is committed to providing safe, reliable and efficient air transport services to spur economic development and foster regional integration through the promotion of trade and regional tourism.”

“The vision of Fly Mid Air was in consonance with that of Peacock Aviation, which is to offer upscale travels experience to passengers in a friendly manner leveraging on the best ultra-modern technology,” said Aare Segun Phillips, executive chairman, Peacock Group of Companies.
