Afrijet, the Gabonese airline, has recently announced its strategic move to address the anticipated surge in summer demand by wetleasing a Bombardier CRJ-900 aircraft. This decision aims to provide passengers with increased flexibility and choice while ensuring top-notch air services.
Meeting Summer Demand
As summer demand surges, especially for flights to and from Congo-Brazzaville and Benin, Afrijet has taken proactive measures to ensure the satisfaction of its passengers.
CemAir LTD, a trusted South African company with IOSA certification since 2017, facilitated the lease of the Bombardier CRJ-900 to Afrijet. The twin-engine CRJ-900 has a seating capacity of up to 90 passengers, specifically designed to cater to the growing traffic between regional airports.
Marc Gaffajoli, the CEO of Afrijet, highlighted the company’s commitment to meeting customer demands and building strong partnerships within the aviation industry.
“Afrijet wishes, on the one hand, to establish solid relations with the airlines on the continent through commercial cooperation and operational synergies. By working with trusted partners such as CemAir LTD, our goal is also to strengthen our position as the airline of choice for travel to Africa.”
Gaffajoli emphasized the advantages offered by the Bombardier CRJ-900, stating that it would enable Afrijet to expand its network and reduce turnaround times on specific routes.
“The Bombardier CRJ-900 will allow Afrijet to expand its network and reduce turnaround time on certain routes on our current network. This will allow us to respond optimally to the expectations of our customers and to offer more flexible travel options.”
