In Apr-2021, Green Africa introduced its first two ATR 72-600 aircraft (5N-GAA and 5N-GAE). The airline plans to deploy up to 15 ATR 72-600s by Dec-2022. The carrier will initially operate from Lagos and plans to open two or three additional bases in Nigeria over the next 18 months. Green Africa received the first ATR 72-600 aircraft on lease from ACIA Aero Leasing in Lagos on 23-Apr-2021.
