Green Africa for inaugural flight


Green Africa Airways has completed the acceptance of three ATR 72-600s from ACIA Aero Leasing as required by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) for a new airline to hold an Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) to  begin commercial flights.

AOC is a mandatory requirement before any airline can commence commercial operations.

In a statement, its spokesperson,  Oyinade Osobajo said the third aircraft with registration ZS-XZC /5N-GAD arrived in Lagos last Thursday.

She said amid  the pandemic-induced market disruption, Green Africa  has laid out a roadmap for market entry by deploying ACIA’s ATR aircraft to deliver affordable, short-haul connectivity between Nigerian cities to stimulate the region’s development and business activity.
