Nigeria-based value airline Green Africa has announced it has ordered fifty A220-300s from Airbus and committed to lease an additional three of the aircraft from leasing company, GTLK Europe, the company said.
The aircraft will allow Green Africa to set course for its planned launch of commercial operations in 2020.
Deliveries of the three aircraft will be completed by August 2020. Green Africa has selected the A220 for its operational characteristics, financial performance and environmental benefits, with the added advantage of superior passenger satisfaction and widebody style cabin comfort.
Green Africa is a value airline based in Lagos, Nigeria. The new airline will offer safe, reliable and affordable air travel to a much broader group of customers and be a significant contributor to the economic development of Nigeria and the African continent.
