Airline Services Components to provide PBH support to Nigeria’s Discovery Air
Nigerian-based Discovery Air has selected ASC to provide full component support on its fleet of Boeing B737-300 aircraft. This Power-by-the-Hour (PBH) contract will cover an initial three operational aircraft, with scope to expand as the airline looks to develop its route network domestically and regionally to destinations including Gambia, Ghana and Cameroon. New start-up Discovery Air was incorporated in July 2008 and is set to begin operations with domestic and regional flights from its main hub in Lagos, Nigeria. Selected for the company’s superior strength on the B737 platform, ASC will support Discovery with a dedicated home base stock on-site in Lagos and component pool at London Gatwick. The contract will continue for a period of three years with the option to renew at the end of the term.
