Green Africa takes delivery of third ATR72-600 ahead of flight commencement
Green Africa, Nigeria’s Lagos-based value airline, has completed the acquisition of three ATR 72-600 aircraft, completing the required requirements for a new airline to obtain an Air Operator Certificate (AOC) and begin commercial operations in Nigeria.
The third aircraft with registration number ZS-XZC/5N-GAD arrived in Lagos on Thursday, 3rd June 2021.
In the face of pandemic-induced market disruption, Green Africa deployed ACIA’s ATR aircraft to provide affordable, short-haul connectivity between Nigerian cities so as to support the region’s economic development.
Speaking on the new development, Babawande Afolabi, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of Green Africa, said:
“Receiving our third aircraft today signifies Green Africa’s readiness to enter into service and start serving our customers. ACIA Aero Leasing has been a very supportive partner and we are proud of this relationship.”
ACIA Aero Leasing Chief Executive Officer Mick Mooney also said, “We are thrilled to have partnered with Green Africa’s experienced management team to get their airline off the ground while supporting their ambitious mission to use the power of air travel to create a better future for customers and other key stakeholders,”.
The value carrier recently launched ticket sales on greenafrica.com with flights as low as N16,500 and a ‘gFlyer Special offer which takes 19 per cent off the first booking of gFlyer Community members.
Customers are encouraged to book flights early to enjoy lower fares
