Asky Unveils Plans to Buy Two Planes Every Year

(Togo First) - Lomé-based airline Asky recently unveiled plans to purchase two Boeing 787s per year.

The carrier revealed its ambition at the 2024 AviaDev Africa, which ended on June 21 in Windhoek, Namibia.

According to Martial Tevi-Bénissan, Asky's commercial director, the plan might be hampered by a global plane shortage, especially the Airbus model that Asky seeks.

"There is currently an availability issue on the plane market. But at least we can revise our plan because we don't want to be stuck. When you look at the market for this year, there's almost no availability, mainly because of delays in the delivery of new aircraft. If we cannot go through with our initial plan,  we will add a new aircraft and at least one destination every year," the executive declared.

Asky’s ambition to expand should both help the company be more competitive and contribute to Lomé’s goal of becoming an air travel hub in the sub-Saharan African region.
