Green Africa Airways is getting ready to start operations

Green Africa Airways (Lagos) now intends to launch operations in the first quarter of 2021.

As previously reported, the upstart signed a memorandum of understanding with Airbus for 50 Airbus A220-300s after canceling its order for 50 Boeing 737 MAX 8s. Deliveries for the A220s will start later this year.

Initially the new airline will commence operations on domestic routes with leased bridge aircraft.

The new airline is currently in the final stages of securing its Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) from the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).

Green Africa is owned by Babawande Afolabi.
