ACIA Aero Leasing (ACIA) has completed the delivery of a second ATR 72-600 aircraft to Bestfly of Angola. The aircraft delivered to Bestfly in Toulouse on May 13, 2020 and will ferry to Angola on May 14, 2020.

 

Bestfly continues to grow its operations in Angola and this second ATR72-600 aircraft from ACIA will allow it to capitalise on the significant growth opportunities in the region.  Bestfly has recently been awarded a flight support contract by Exxon Mobile in Angola and anticipates further contract wins in the coming months.

 

Speaking about the delivery, Bestfly CEO, Nuno Pereira commented: “This a very proud and long awaited moment, the second ATR72-600 of our fleet shall be an important piece on the puzzle of our growth, this is even more significant at this challenging moment of our industry, thanks to ACIA for the continued support and trust in BestFly and to ATR for believing in us and in our project. ”

 

ACIA CEO, Mick Mooney said: “We are delighted to support Nuno, Alcinda and the entire Bestfly team as they continue to grow their aviation business in Angola.  Bestfly’s operations have so far shown resilience to the current downturn in the aviation industry and the Bestfly team has been able to expand their operations when others have had to shrink.  We look forward to continuing our partnership with them for many years to come”
