GE Capital Aviation Services Limited (GECAS), the commercial aircraft leasing and financing arm of GE, announced today the opening of a new office in Nairobi, Kenya, to serve airline customers in eastern Africa.
“Africa continues to offer an excellent growth opportunity for GECAS given the breadth of our fleet and product offerings," said Jonty Nel, senior vice president and region manager, Africa, Middle East and CIS for GECAS. "We're increasing our presence on the African continent generally with a focus on East Africa, and we see great potential for growth in the region."
This is GECAS’ third African office after Accra, Ghana, and Cape Town, South Africa, opened in 2011. The Cape Town office serves customers in southern Africa while the Accra office focuses on western and central Africa. North Africa will continue to be covered by GECAS’ Dubai office.
