Dakar-based Senegal Airlines has taken delivery of a Bombardier Q400 NextGen turboprop aircraft wet-leased from Falcon Aviation Services of Abu Dhabi.

The aircraft is one of two that were ordered under a firm purchase agreement between Bombardier and Falcon announced in February 2014.

With the assistance of Falcon, this wonderful Bombardier Q400 NextGen airliner will help us expand our fleet with a modern, fuel-efficient aircraft that has proven to be a robust, reliable and flexible performer in sub-Sahara Africa, said Mayoro Racine, Chief Executive Officer, Senegal Airlines. Our passengers will appreciate the quiet comfort of its interior, and the aircrafts speed will permit us to offer a seamless service between it and our larger jet aircraft.

Bombardiers Dash 8/Q-Series turboprops and CRJ regional jets have made significant advances in Africa where approximately 160 aircraft - including more than 50 Q400 and Q400 NextGen turboprops - are in service, or on order, by approximately 40 customers and operators.

Captain Mahmoud Ismael, Chief Operating Officer, Falcon Aviation Services, said, Safe operations are essential for the further development of the air transport system in Africa and the Q400 NextGen aircraft fits the criteria we have established for this venture. We anticipate more successful placements of Q400 NextGen aircraft into Africa in the near future.
