 EGYPTAIR is reaching out to help west Africa overcome its MRO problems.
 20 April, 2022 - Cairo, Egypt
 
  
 
																		Nigeria, which had been an option for expansion into west Africa, is “still there” in terms of opportunity, said Engineer Yousef Wahby, sales, marketing and business development
director, but his company’s focus now is also on Ghana, where EgyptAir support for start-up Ghana Airways includes providing a number of B737-800s.
Wahby said a line maintenance base in Accra started operations in mid-February, serving the EgyptAir aircraft and the Qatar Airways fleet operating at Accra – its first third-party customer at the station.
Pre-Covid, the company had identified 13 airports across the region for line maintenance bases. “Hopefully we’ll get back to them,” he said.
“We want to go to them in their countries. It will be easier for them. We want to support them in whatever it takes.” Part of the long-term plan in Ghana is to train a qualified domestic workforce. “It will help them and lower the cost to us of sending Egyptians,” he concluded.
