SmileAir cancels B747-400 orders

Posted 17 November 2015 · Add Comment

SmileAir has dropped plans to lease a pair of B747-400s from Mahan Air following a managerial decision to focus on regional West African flying, ch-aviation reports.

In spite of carrying SmileAir’s livery, neither aircraft was taken to Ghana.
 
"The Hub strategy will enable Smile Air to concentrate on both passenger and cargo traffic throughout West Africa and amalgamate Smile Air’s principal strategy to offer direct flights to China and the Far East in the future," said representatives from the carrier.
 
SmileAir is undergoing certification with the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority.
