Nigerian start-up carrier Green Africa has revealed the first photos of its newly introduced ATR 72-600 aircraft.

The Lagos-based airline has now welcomed the regional turboprop aircraft to its fleet, registrations 5N-GAA and 5N-GAE, both of which now boast its fluro-green livery, painted in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Chief executive Babawande Afolabi, who founded the airline in 2015, stated that the airline intends to deploy 15 ATR 72-600s by the end of 2022.

With these recent deliveries, Green Africa can now commence phase 4 of its Air Operators Certificate acquisition.

Speaking of the deliveries, Afolabi said, “This is part of our final step to build Green Africa into a vibrant carrier and we remain committed in our mission to use the power of air travel to create a better future for everyone.”


The airline initially intends to operate in the domestic Nigerian market out of Lagos, and already has plans to open an additional two-three bases across Nigeria in the coming 18 months, before expanding further out into other African nations, according to Afolabi.
