As a joint venture between the Gambian government and Germania subsidiary Flynext, they will use an A319-100 operated by Flynext, a scenario that is fast becoming common place in Africa apropos Korongo in Congo Kinshasa whose aircraft and maintenance are done by Brussels Airlines of Belgium, and Equatorial Congo Airlines whose crews and technical support are provided by Geneva-based VIP business carrier PrivatAir.
