Nigerian start-up carrier Green Africa Airways has unveiled an initial route network on which to commence operations.

The network focuses on its Lagos base and comprises six domestic destinations, including the capital Abuja and Port Harcourt.

Green Africa also says it will operate to Akure, Ilorin, Enugu and Owerri, cities located mainly in the south and west of the country.

“Additional cities within Nigeria will be added as the value carrier scales its operations,” it states.

Green Africa is planning to set up at least two bases outside of Lagos to offer more options to passengers.

“We are crafting a network plan that will afford more customers the opportunity to pursue their economic interest or simply spend more time with family and friends,” says chief executive Babawande Afolabi.

The airline recently received a number of ATR turboprops with which it plans to start services, although the carrier has indicated ambitions to move up to medium-haul jets.

It says it will offer three product levels to provide customers with “choice and flexibility”.

Green Africa says it is in the “advanced stages” of obtaining its air operator’s certificate from the Nigerian civil aviation regulator.
