Quoting Thomas_Jaeger (Reply 2): Does anyone know what type of feeder services Brussels Airlines has in mind when it will start moving its BAe 146-200 fleet to Pan-African Airlines later this year?
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)

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.
2x A320 (firm order)
5 x A320 (firm order), 6 x A350 (commitment)
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.
