Review and Competition On The 7 New Routes
Green Africa is starting on the right note and we feel the airline has lots of work to do if they want to compete with the already existing airlines.
Green Africa On Lagos – Abuja Route
This is a hot market for all domestic airlines in Nigeria. All the domestic airlines in Nigeria have one or more flights between Lagos and Abuja. It will not be easy for Green Africa to break into the route but the airline can do it effortlessly if the price is of a ticket is cheaper, if they have more flights and good customer services.
Green Africa On Akure Route
Green Africa has a big chance here because of the limited number of airlines operating this route. Air Peace is enjoying a monopoly on this route so the addition of Green Africa will help drive the cost of flight ticket down.
Green Africa On Ilorin Route
Overland is the only airline operating the Ilorin route and the airline has only one flight daily. Aside from that, the overland flight ticket cost is not cheap and the ticket rules are something else. If Green Africa means business, they can compete very well with overland. Overland will have no choice to either improve or watch green Africa.
Green Africa On Enugu Route
Enugu is not going to be easy for Green Africa because they are 4 airlines that are servicing this airport. All the airlines operating from Enugu has cheap and affordable flight ticket. Some of the airlines have more than one flights daily. We will wait and see what Green Africa has to offer to “Nde Enugu”.
Green Africa On Owerri Route
Owerri is already a hot zone for domestic airlines in Nigeria. Air Peace is leading the race with 2 and sometimes 3 flights daily on this route. The cheapest cost of a flight ticket on the Owerri route starts from NGN 23,000. What will Green Africa do to have its share of the market?
Green Africa On Portharcourt Route
After Lagos and Abuja, Portharcourt is one of the busiest destinations in Nigeria. The oil state has United Nigeria Airline, Air Peace, Dana, Arik, Aero contractors operating from the airport.
Now that Green Africa is planning to enter the state, they have to offer something all of these airlines does not have if they want to compete. It can be on-time flight performance, cheap flight ticket or good customer service.
Green African should capitalize on other airlines weakness to win customers. the market is already saturated and more airlines are still planning to enter the market.
