Nigeria’s value airline startup, Green Africa Airways has issued an official statement on the Boeing 737 MAX8 accidents.
In an email statement, Babawande Afolabi, Founder & CEO of Green Africa Airways, said: “Green Africa Airways grieves with the families of the Boeing 737 MAX8 tragic accidents. This dark shadow on the airline industry definitely can and must be removed. Boeing must do everything necessary to make this happen and we will follow closely the steps Boeing takes to fix the issues.
He added that “As Green Africa Airways gradually prepares to launch operations, safety of our customers, crew members and partners will be a cornerstone principle guiding all our decisions and everything that we do. This is a sad time for the affected families and our industry but we are confident there are bright days ahead.”
It would be recalled that Green Africa Airways signed a landmark deal with Boeing last December that will see the startup airline acquire up to 100 Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft.
Green Africa Airways is a value airline headquartered in Lagos, Nigeria. Also called GAA, the airline said it aims to be a significant contributor to the economic development of Nigeria and the African continent.
