Montreal, 24 October 2019 — Canada-based business aviation support services leader ACASS and Italy-based Piaggio Aerospace have formed a relationship to market and sell Piaggio Aerospace’s P180 Avanti EVO twin turboprop in Nigeria, Kenya, South Africa, and Indonesia.

“Our aircraft has a tremendous potential in countries where the Avanti EVO has not been marketed” says Andrea Di Fede, Piaggio Head of Aircraft Sales. “With its regional expertise and well-connected sales team, ACASS is the perfect partner to help us capitalize on this opportunity.”

I am confident we will be able to generate significant interest and sales results.”
