Green Africa Airways announced yesterday that it will commence ticket sales from Tuesday, 25th May. This is an exciting step for any startup airline, but for Green Africa, it has been a step in the making for over six years. The carrier has ordered aircraft, put together a leadership team, and included industry leaders on its board of directors.

As we’ve previously covered, Green Africa Airways will begin operations with six domestic routes. These will all be from Lagos and are: Akure, Ilorin, Abuja, Enugu, Owerri, and Port Harcourt and commence on June 24th. The carrier will slowly scale up operations as it receives more aircraft in the coming months and over the year.

Green Africa calls its customers ‘gFlyers’ and is offering them discounts for being early passengers. Travelers booking on the airline’s website will receive a 10% discount on all fare classes to celebrate the airline’s launch. The three fare classes are: gSaver, gClassic, and gFlex.
