Flights to Bamako and Dakar are operated on B757-200 aircraft which will be replaced by B737-700 aircraft from June. Th ese two new destinations will round off the service off ering of Equatorial Congo Airlines, which already provides services to and from Cotonou (Benin), Douala (Cameroon), Libreville (Gabon) and Kinshasa (DRC) as part of its regional network, the company said.

Equatorial Congo Airlines now connects Brazzaville to eleven destinations including: Domestic routes to Pointe-Noire and Ollombo; regional destinations Kinshasa (river shuttle), Libreville, Douala, Cotonou, Bamako, Dakar; and international routes to Paris, Dubai, Brussels (connecting from Paris).

“Th e new routes (Libreville, Dakar, Bamako) are the fulfilment of our efforts to connect the African economic capitals with each other and with the rest of the world,” says Fatima Beyina- Moussa, managing director of ECAir and president of the African Airlines Association (AFRAA).

“We are going to continue our expansion with the opening of the next destinations (Yaounde, Abidjan, Bangui, N’Djamena and Beirut). All of this is possible because with Maya-Maya, we have one of the most modern airports in Africa, with a high handling capacity.
