Evergreen Apple Nigeria (EAN, Booth 2135) announced here at EBACE that it has signed a representation agreement with Gulfstream Aerospace. This announcement comes just a week and a half after the closing of a successful Nigerian business aviation conference, the country’s first, hosted by EAN. The company is the first fully integrated FBO, maintenance and hangar facility for business jets to open at Murtala Mohammed Airport in Lagos.
“The signing of this agreement demonstrates Gulfstream Aerospace’s commitment to expansion in Africa. We are pleased to work with the company in Nigeria and look forward to developing the brand in the region,” said Segun Demuren, CEO of EAN. “Large-cabin, long-range jets are popular with Nigerian owners so I anticipate that we will be busy,” he said.
Currently, 64 Gulfstreams are based in Africa, with 13 regularly operating in Nigeria, according to Gulfstream Aerospace’s Trevor Esling, regional senior v-p, international sales, Europe, Middle East and Africa.
