GIG Aviation boosts cargo services in Nigeria
Regional turboprop manufacturer ATR is about to finalise an agreement for the delivery of two ATR 72-500 freighters from its asset management portfolio to GIG Aviation, a subsidiary of GIG Group.
The ATR 72-500s will initiate GIG Aviation’s journey as a freighter airline. The ATR freighters will help GIG Logistics expand its network in Africa to meet the rapid growth of e-commerce in the country and strengthen the connections between communities from the different regions and sub regions.
With its superior economics and versatility, burning 40% less fuel and emitting 40% less CO2 than a similar-sized regional jet, ATR is the perfect fit for economical and sustainable expansion. (cj)
