“What makes us different is that our client can fly point to point and we provide much more efficient, consistent product offering.

“Nigeria is a very big aviation market and so we are providing an alternative to aircraft acquisition, a solution where someone can buy 100 hours for instance.”

“We have been in Africa for the past 14 years and we are happy to continue we the services we have been providing in the past years having flown to over 96 countries and over 2,400 airports across the world,” he explained.

Scalabrini further stated “In the last one year its customer traffic has increased by 28 per cent in the African continent and 58 per cent in the west African region,”  

He stated that three Challenger 605 aircraft have been provided in the African region, saying each of the 12-seater jets has eight-hour flying ranger and can do point to point in Africa, adding that the firm has the capacity to provide bigger jets for long haul flight
