Equatorial Guinea's Air Annobón seeks partner for LCC

Posted 5 September 2016 · Add Comment

Air Annobon is seeking a suitable partner to assist it in rel-aunching its operations as a Low Cost Carrier (LCC), reports ch-aviation.

Airline personnel indicate the Equatoguinean authorities will shortly reinstate Air Annobon's Air Operator's Certificate (AOC) in time for an anticipated October resumption of services.

Between 2012 and 2014, Air Annobon operated a pair of BAe 146-300s, wet-leased from South Africa's Fair Aviation on flights between Malabo and Bata. It also has service rights to a number of Central and West African destinations, which, it claims, present good commercial opportunities. 

Under the auspices of a joint-venture agreement, Air Annobon is looking for a suitable partner to supply it with 60-100 seater aircraft capable of operating across Africa. In line with its rebirth as an LCC, said partner will also need to take care of all administrative, MRO, commercial agreements, and flight and ground operations.
