Afrijet Business Service is a Gabonese airline operating scheduled service to a number of airports throughout Cameroon, Gabon, and São Tomé, as well as the Republic of the Congo.[1]

History

Afrijet was founded in 2004 by a group of private investors, initially flying private charters using Falcon 900 aircraft. In 2016, Afrijet commenced scheduled domestic flights throughout Gabon, and have since expanded to neighboring countries.[2]

On 9 December 2021, AfriJet announced it had partnered with La Compagnie to launch seasonal flights between Paris Orly and Libreville's Léon-Mba International Airport from 16 December 2021 [3]

AfriJet is looking towards the future of sustainable aviation. At the 54th Paris Air Show on June 21, 2023, the airline signed a Memorandum of Understanding with AURA AERO, a French aircraft manufacturer, for the 19-seater ERA, an electric regional aircraft expected to enter commercial service before 2030.
