Green Africa Airways has secured the approval of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) to construct its Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) facility to enable it carry out maintenance of its aircraft and conduct third party maintenance.

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Green Africa Airways, Mr Babawande Afolabi, disclosed this yesterday while speaking with newsmen during the first anniversary of its Future Initiative, signaling the completion of training of 13 new talents.

On the planned MRO, he disclosed that the company had recruited engineers and other personnel for the maintenance of its fleet.

He said: “We started flying way back in 2021, and we have been given the approval by NCAA for our own line maintenance. So, we got that last August. So, within a year of being in operations, we got the approval for our maintenance.

“Over the next two years, our plan is for Green Africa to be able to do its own maintenance end-to-end. Right now, we can do everything to TA Check, 5,000 flying hours. After flying your aircraft for about two years, there is usually a check you have to conduct, but here now, we can do that.

“The next thing for us now is to have the capability in terms of infrastructure and the approval from the authority to be able to do a full-blown base maintenance. That is in the works, but it takes time. You need to gain experience, approval and infrastructure. Those are in the pipelines.”
