Absolute Aviation is appointed as exclusive Beechcraft distributor in Sub-Saharan Africa

Hawker Beechcraft Corporation has announced that it has appointed Neil Howard and Absolute Aviation as an exclusive Beechcraft distributor for Sub-Saharan Africa. The company has identified the South African region as offering some of the best growth prospects of any country in the world.

“Africa represents a huge opportunity for us as travel around the continent is becoming increasingly important,” said Sean McGeough, HBC president, Europe, Middle East and Africa. “We have already seen strong interest in our aircraft from a number of organizations, including multi-nationals based there. The addition of Absolute Aviation to our network provides further impetus to strong Beechcraft sales in the region.”

“As the country and the continent develop, demand for business aircraft will grow dramatically to provide access to remote parts of the region, cover vast distances and also help counter the limitations of the transportation infrastructure, which is underdeveloped compared to other parts of the world,” McGeough said. “Travelling by business aircraft is therefore not only often the quickest way to travel, but sometimes the only option.”
