The Boeing 737 MAX 8 has a new customer on the African continent. ASKY Airlines signed a two-aircraft lease agreement with AerCap on Monday.

The two second-hand 737 MAXs will be delivered in June and August to the pan-African carrier based in Togo.

“We are delighted to welcome ASKY as a new customer to AerCap and particularly pleased to place the first MAX in Togo,” said Aengus Kelly, the CEO of AerCap. “AerCap is the largest lessor in Africa with 14 airline customers on the continent.”

“I consider it an honor to introduce state-of-the-art B737-8 MAX aircraft into the ASKY fleet, which will support our wide regional network in our continuous endeavor to serve our esteemed customers,” said Esayas W. HAILU, the CEO of ASKY.

With a fleet of 12 Boeing 737NGs (eight 737-800s and four 737-700s), ASKY has a flight network that serves 26 cities in 24 countries in Central and West Africa.
