Air Peace shows keen interest in Airbus A320 family
In 2022, Air Peace has supported its capacity by adding Airbus’ A320 family aircraft to its fleet.
On January 18, 2022, the airline received two Airbus A320-200 on a six-month damp-lease contract from EU-based ACMI charter and cargo operator, SmartLynx Airlines.
Air Peace also highlighted in a tweet in January 2022 that it expected to boost its capacity with Embraer 195-E2 aircraft.
Air Peace currently operates a fleet of 39 aircraft, comprising three Boeing 777s, five Embraer E2s, eight Embraer ERJ-145s, 10 Airbus A320s and 13 Boeing 737s, according to planespotters.net data.
