With new S08 schedule I believe there is a lot to mention about african skies again, there must be a lot of news in this quickly developing continent, so please feel free to inform us all, if you know some interesting development.
Thank you all in advance.

Hello, my first post on a.net ! Air France adds a 4th weekly flight to Kinshasa, FIH. A330 flying on this route every tu, th, sa and su. And JNB goes twice daily with brand new B777-300ER. Overall capacity up close to 5% this summer on AF african routes.
In a bid to upgrade its services and expand its fleet of aircraft between now and the 2010 World Cup in neighbouring South Africa, Mozambique's national airline LAM said it will invest $150 million.
LAM chief executive officer Jose Veigas said the airline would buy new planes to upgrade or replace some of its current fleet of four Boeing 737s and six other light aircraft.
Competition on East Africa's most lucrative route - Entebbe-Nairobi - has intensified following Air Uganda's re-entry into the market on a route that has been dominated by Kenya Airways since its main competitor was grounded in 2005.

Quoting Myt332 (Reply 7): Ghana Airlines are looking to lease 2 A340's to start services to Oslo and Belfast.
Are you kidding me or is this a joke? The vast majority of Ghana Airlines natural target market - expatriate Ghanaians live in England and The United States. If Ghana Airlines cannot do LHR profitably with a B757 then what miracle are they expecting with an A340 to Belfast and Oslo?
