Evergreen Apple Nigeria, which opened the first full FBO in Nigeria in July 2011, has announced at NBAA a partnership with Florida FBO operator Banyan Air Service (booth 2766). The tie-up will see Banyan "transferring its extensive experience and skills to EAN by sharing knowledge, resources and contacts with the aim of supporting and developing EAN's customer focused service strategy", says Banyan.

EAN chief executive Segun Demuren says 33-year-old Banyan represents a "fine example of how we would like our business to develop", adding: "We are a fledgling business and the first in the market to respond to the needs of a growing business aviation fraternity in our country. We are delighted to start sharing best practice, knowledge and resources with Banyan as we evolve and fine tune our operation."
