AfrikFly has announced readiness to support industry operators through the process of recovery as the aviation industry battles the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic which began early 2020.
The Chief Executive Officer of AfrikFly, Ms. Chloe Grant, says: “Our goal is simple, to become the most trusted, innovative and preferred aviation services company on the continent. We offer our clients robust solutions driven by our team of professionals with deep knowledge of the market, and extensive commercial relationships with the key trade partners.”
She says AfrikFly, which was founded in 2020, is currently working with a variety of partners, including an automated overflight payment collections organization without any up-front costs to allow sovereignties to not only collect their fees but to develop their airspace, which is a win-win situation for all.
Due to the lull in the industry, AfrikFly is using the opportunity to revolutionize the African airlines’ sales market with an already proven ticketing system for non-IATA agents that is increasing sales in European markets. It offers more for the African markets, allowing airlines not only access to the largest sales market across Africa but the opportunity for white label content ready for their own branding via a European BSP number.
AfrikFly is also offering to support clients to access reliable spares for various aircraft types, adhering to the quality standards of the ISO, ASA, and EASA.
” We need to encourage the training of more young Africans in engineering and maintenance to grow this sector of the African aviation industry.
AfrikFly also offers innovative training solutions for African airlines. Ms. Grant has spent a lot of her career in aeronautical training markets across Africa. “Our training facilitation on the African continent includes aircraft simulators and air traffic control training complete with mobile simulators; we are also offering a variety of courses such as remote tower operations and accident investigation,” she explains.
With her dedicated team she has a recent excellent track record in airline sales, she says: “As such we have been able to offer charter flights during the pandemic and partnered as a GSA with an airline until the pandemic struck, having teams in both Nigeria and Senegal.
