Posted 4 March 2020 · Add Comment

While Canadian company Voyageur Aviation is participating at Aviation Africa for the first-time it is no stranger to Africa as it provides charter services here.

 

“Our global clients around the world range from from NGOs, corporate clients, governments and airlines,” said Conor Sheridan, director of sales and marketing.

“Our fleet is Dash 8-100 and 300s, as well as CRJ200s, as well as King Air 200 which we operate in an air ambulance configuration.”

 

It is the Dash 8s that are particularly popular in Africa.

 

“We operate all over African including in Uganda, Sudan Mali and the DRC.  We generally supply the Dash-8 and CRJs here, but the Dash-8s are perfect for this region,” explained Sheridan. “The Dash-8 is a very robust aircraft that can operate in remote, hostile and challenging regions and keep reliable to a level our customers require.”

 

The company also attended the event to talk about its MRO side on the Dash-8 product line as well as the CRJ line,  as well as supporting on the part sales and support for both lines.

 

“We also are looking to expand our dry-leasing arm and we think this will be of interest to this continent with the aircraft we have available,” said Sheridan.

 

The company has also recently partnered with UK company Segers which will see the establishment of a regional aircraft parts depot in Dubai, UAE.

 

“This exciting new partnership includes a spare parts distribution agreement that will leverage Segers' experienced logistics and sales expertise to sell Voyageur-owned spare parts to operators in the region and beyond,” said Gary Gilbert, director part sales. “Under the agreement, Voyageur will provide a pool of Dash 8-400, CRJ, and Dash 8 Classic spare parts to Segers for sale or exchange.”
