I have heard the same thing !!

The 762ER is in BRU @ Lufthansa Technik.

SN is doing a weekly flight (wetlease) for them on tuesdays but with an A330 in an old Air Madrid config so not the SN flagship product. But it's not a code-share at all.

Are your sure it's Pan African Airlines? To my knowledge that is a Nigerian helicopter company owned by Bristows. However, this question was discussed here: SN In Africa, The Story Continues (by Bwest May 28 2007 in Civil Aviation)

I'm guessing ATR has the best maintainance base because of the number of ATR 42/72 in the region. It would be nice to see Q400's flying between NBO, EBB, DAR and MBA!

So the Paris Air Show is nearly over, and amidst all the big announcements of especially Airbus, there were three African operators who placed orders. All from North-Africa, unfortunately no announcements from operators from Sub-Saharan Africa.

Nouvelair:
2x A320 (firm order)

Afriqiyah Airways
5 x A320 (firm order), 6 x A350 (commitment)

Libyan Airlines
7x A320, 4 x A330, 4 x A350 (all commitments)

So something exciting is happening in Libyan aviation! LN and 8U are thus set to be the first African operators of the A350.

No direct African orders placed for Boeing, ATR, Bombardier and/or Embraer if I'm correct (though I'm hoping VK or B3 will pick up some of the 787 orders of ILFC).

Considering how shoddily the big manufacturers treat operators from Sub-Saharan Africa, I can't say I'm particularly surprised. Bombardier and Embraer are making a lot of effort to woo the smaller operators in Sub-Saharan Africa though and their products are ideally suited to the market as well.
