Air Sénégal to acquire two A330neos
Air Sénégal, the national carrier of Senegal, has signed a firm order for two A330neo aircraft, the new re-engined version of the best-selling A330 wide-body airliner. The order follows the memorandum of understanding signed at the Dubai Airshow in November 2017.
The order was inked in Dakar last week (wk 5), in the presence of the French president, Emmanuel Macron, who was on a state visit to Senegal, and his Senegalese counterpart Macky Sall.
Philippe Bohn, CEO Air Sénégal, declared: "These aircraft will contribute to developing our medium and long-haul network. It is important for us to begin our commercial activities with aircraft that are both reliable and economical. The order demonstrates our ambitions for this new airline." (ah)
