Special INSIGHT Report: Bestfly Flight Support

A special report on how Angola's corporate aviation stars came out from a cockpit idea.

This week's special INSIGHT report into the world of corporate aviation uncovers how Angola’s Bestfly was born.

Today Bestfly manages corporate shuttle services for leading international oil majors and mining businesses, it supplies standby medevac services for the offshore industry, has a fleet of business jets and turboprops to support companies and private individual with safe, efficient and secure flights across Southern Africa. It also has an award-winning FBO matching the concierge and facilities that VIP passengers get anywhere in the world.

 
It all started when the company’s owner Nuno Pereira was flying a Boeing 747 for the national carrier and worked with his wife, Alcinda, to create the new service.
 
In this episode Nuno talks about the challenges of setting up and growing a business.
He shares his experience in working with the government to change perception and developing a shared vision that has firmly put Angola on the aviation map.
 
He talks about his fleet and his need for more aircraft – and how Covid-19 has given the whole Bestfly family the chance to shine and prove themselves in the most challenging of circumstances.
 
Creating a business from nothing is always an emotional roller-coaster, but this is an aviation personal story with messages for us all.
