Bestfly has recently been awarded a flight support contract by ExxonMobil in Angola and anticipates further contract wins in the coming months.

Speaking about the delivery, Bestfly CEO, Nuno Pereira comments: “This a very proud and long awaited moment; the second ATR72-600 of our fleet will be an important piece in the puzzle of our growth. This is even more significant at this challenging moment of our industry. Thanks to ACIA for its continued support and trust in Bestfly and to ATR for believing in us and in our project.”

ACIA CEO, Mick Mooney adds: “We are delighted to support Nuno, Alcinda and the entire Bestfly team as they continue to grow their aviation business in Angola. Bestfly's operations have so far shown resilience to the current downturn in the aviation industry and the Bestfly team has been able to expand their operations when others have had to shrink. We look forward to continuing our partnership with them for many years to come.”
