Nigerian start-up airline, Green Africa Airways, based in Lagos, has deferred the delivery of 50 A220-300 aircraft it initial planned on deploying for its flight operations in Nigeria’s aviation sector and had opted to use the ATR72-600 aircraft.

The airline which is set to be the first carrier in the country to use the ATR72-600 aircraft says it will commence revenue service in the sector.

According to the carrier, “This direction will sustainably get us into service, scale and be better positioned to serve you in a COVID-19 environment.”

In 2018, the Green Africa had a commitment with United States (US), aircraft manufacturing giant, Boeing for up to 100 737 MAX 8 aircraft, evenly split into 50 firm aircraft and 50 options, as the airline gears up to begin commercial operations

The total deal carries a list-price of $11.7 billion, the largest aircraft agreement from Africa, and will be reflected on Boeing’s Orders and Deliveries website once finalized.
