With Africa's GDP at 6% growth this year. Africa is attracting the attention of the world, as a excellent place for a quick buck.
Where do you use new routes into the continent emerging this year.
I'm especially interested to hear about Middle-Eastern carrier as I'm from Qatar.

THanks.

Quoting Zen100 (Thread starter):

Although the prospects look promising for Africa, as you have mentioned, it is far from being a place offering a 'quick buck', unless you are talking about non-African carriers starting African routes (like Emirates or Qatar Airways).

Foreign investors investing in existing or start-up African airlines have to surpass several hurdles, relating to poor airport and navigation infrastructure, buraucracy and to some extent political uncertainty in some regions. Nontheless, investors are aware of the LONG TERM market potential. The African continent offers a wealth of opportunities waiting to be tapped into. Many countries have embarked on serious reform programs, so there seems to be light at the end of Africa's tunnel.

Not quite a Middle-Eastern carrier but you might be interested to know that TK recently started flights to Khartoum, Addis Ababa and Lagos. Also flights to Abu Dhabi, Doha and Sanaa in the Middle-East have been started...

Airlines from the Gulf countries are becoming more & more interested in the Tunisian market. QR is adding flights and EK,GF and KU are to follow sooner. EY also could be targetting us  Wink Libya, Algeria, and especially Morocco are in the same way. Eastern, Western and Southern Africa are also great, and now traditional, destinations for airlines from the Middle-East. It is Central Africa that lacks interest !!!
