Green Africa’s low-fare inaugural flight arrives Abuja

Green Africa, Nigeria’s Lagos-based value airline, officially commenced commercial flights as inaugural flight arrived at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja charging as low as N16,500 on its ticket.

The airline’s Brand Marketing Specialist, Oyindamola Fashogbon, said the airline commenced its first flight operations following the announcement of the receipt of Air Operator Certificate (AOC) from the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).

She said that operations started officially on Thursday with an inaugural flight from Lagos to Abuja on one of the airline’s ATR 72-600s.

She added that the first flights into other destinations from Lagos are scheduled between Aug. 14 and 2, adding that customers who want to book a flight should visit and enjoy low fares from N16,500.

Fashogbon said the airline’s officials received passengers and several stakeholders from Lagos checked-in at the airline’s counters situated in the Alpha Terminal of the Murtala Muhammed Airport 1 (GAT).

She said: “The aircraft was given a special welcome to Abuja with a water canon salute as the aircraft touched down on the ramp.

“As part of the inaugural flight ceremony, customers were engaged inflight in an interactive ‘knowledge test’ session.

“Hence, three customers each won a voucher with 10kg baggage allowance for their next flight with the airline.”

Fashogbon said the inaugural flight ceremony also featured cake cutting and photo sessions with celebrities and guests.

On arrival in Abuja, Babawande Afolabi, Founder and CEO, Green Africa while addressing customers, aviation dignitaries and newsmen said the airline was on a mission to connect more people in the country and Africa.
