Green Africa officially started operations on Thursday with an inaugural flight from Lagos to Abuja on one of the airline’s ATR 72-600s. This flight activity follows the airline’s announcement of receiving the Air Operator Certificate from the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).
Customers and other stakeholders from Lagos checked in at Green Africa counters in the Alpha Terminal of the Murtala Muhammed Airport 1 (GAT) and were welcomed to Abuja with water cannon salute when the aircraft landed on the runway.
As part of the inaugural flight ceremony, customers were engaged inflight in an interactive ‘knowledge test’ session and 3 customers each won a voucher with 10kg baggage allowance for their next flight with Green Africa.
Green Africa CEO Babawande Afolabi, upon arrival in Abuja, addressed customers, dignitaries and journalists said ‘We are on a mission to connect more people in Nigeria and Africa to their dreams and opportunities. It’s what kept us going despite the odds over the last several years and it’s what will continue to sustain this franchise even after we are all gone.
The inaugural flight ceremony also featured cake cutting and photo sessions with gTalents and guests.
For customers from Abuja, Green Africa Counters can be found at Terminal D, Domestic Wing, Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport.
