After returning from US, Nigerian man starts airline company, to begin flight operations to Imo, other places

A Nigerian American returnee, Babawande Afolabi, has been praised online for his amazing initiative of launching an airline called Green Africa Airways.

Though a Twitter handle @OvieAli claimed it is a new airline company, news about the outfit has been in the media as far back as 2018 as seen in Bloomberg and Black Enterprise.


A check on Bloomberg shows that the company which is under the sub-industry category of transportation and logistics was founded in 2015.

In 2018, Black Enterprise gathered that an order was placed for some airbuses after “the company reached an agreement with Boeing for some 737 MAX 8 aircraft”.

A further check on Facebook shows that the company announced that they indeed took delivery of a new aircraft with registration number ZS-ESS/5N-GAA on Friday, May 14, and are beginning commercial operations to Enugu, Abuja, Ilorin, Owerri, Port Harcourt, among others.

Before venturing into the airline industry, he was a venture investment expert in America with years of experience.
