The Chief Executive Officer of Air Peace, Allen Onyema has stated that the air line is willing to operate direct flights to Israel.

Over the weekend, Onyema paid a courtesy visit to Yakubu Pam, executive secretary of the Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC), in his office in Abuja.

Michael Freeman, Israel’s ambassador to Nigeria, accompanied the airline’s founder.

He stated that Air Peace wished to begin flights from Lagos to Tel Aviv in order to alleviate the burden of connecting flights on Nigerian pilgrims.

On his part, Pam said: “Having a direct flight to Israel by a Nigerian airline will curtail the issue of high expenditure and reduce abscondment.”

“Our joy is that our own person, a Nigerian, will be the first to have this opportunity to airlift pilgrims directly to Israel”.

Pam added that it would significantly reduce the cost of flights, and he thanked the ambassador for thinking it necessary to pay a courtesy visit to NCPC.

“We are very humble to receive you here in your capacity as one who represents the entire country of Israel in Nigeria,” he said.

He went on to say that the NCPC was established primarily to coordinate and supervise Christian pilgrimages to Israel and other holy sites around the world.

Pam praised the ambassador for his zeal and perseverance in charting a course for Christian pilgrimage, as well as Onyema for his national humanitarian interventions.

Freeman, for his part, thanked the NCPC president for all of his efforts in furthering the cause of Christian pilgrimage in Nigeria.

He expressed his pleasure at working with the NCPC.

“We have a true partnership to grow together,” Freeman added.
