It is long time ago similar topic was here and since I strongly believe Africa deserves it, please feel free to update us with any new development on this continent.
For the starter I can add
1/ KQ opening FKI - Kisingani in DR Congo 3 times weekly with the mix of E70 and 738
2/ 8U (Afriqiyah of Libya) opening JNB effective 15JUL 3 weekly with newly purchased 330

I have always been very interested in aviation in Ghana and was wondering what the latest news was on G0. There was always talk about expansion but they seem to just be operating with the single 757 on the ACC -LGW and DUS routes. Are there any future plans on regional operations or international routes?
Also how is Antrak Air doing?
Thanks

Great idea PRGLY  thumbsup 

I will be moving to MRU in a few weeks so i will be reading this thread with great interest as I think most of our vacations in the next few years will involve Africa . ( plus most of my partners business travel )

I heard a rumour recently that my new home carrier MK is in a bit of a financial mess at the moment ( of course most carriers anywhere in the world are ) the story seemed to be that they had rather unwisely hedged all their fuel for the next 2 years at some ridiculously high level just before the prices went back down again ! I wondered whether any of you had heard any info regarding that ?

Quoting Dkny (Reply 2):

I have read a little bit about ASKY , but I am not clear what the reason was that ET chose Lome as the base ? Is there any particular reason for this choice ? Dkny , have you heard when ASKY is supposed to start up ?

I am looking forward to reading lots of interesting news on this thread ( and I hope I may even be able to contribute something useful once I have settled into my new home )

5/ Ceiba international Equatorial Guinee received pair of new ATR, where they fly to, nothing published in GDS, Web page disappeared,

For the starter I can add
1/ KQ opening FKI - Kisingani in DR Congo 3 times weekly with the mix of E70 and 738

Wow! FKI will be interesting. I think an E70 is about right for this market.

I've always wondered why somebody didn't fly a DHC-8 from NBO to GOM.
Jetlink presently does so, but with a CR2 (100 series). The CRJs performance characteristics just don't lend themselves to GOM's challenging environment (lava covering half the runway, which can only be used in one direction, which frequently has tailwinds for takeoffs and landings, knowing CRJ rotation speeds are high for landing and t/o, even with flaps 20).

Interestingly enough, FBM, which had been doing quite well due to mining traffic, has seen a huge pull out of Western & Chinese resource-based companies. Prior to commodity prices tumbling, KQ had upped flights to 5x weekly (B737 or B733s), ET had begun service (4x weekly), and SAX had four flights (CR7s). I'm wondering how much the schedule here will be trimmed.

Not to steer the thread off course but which African carriers have the potential to join an alliance (reliable, large enough, modern fleet, well positioned hub etc).

South African- Already in Star
Egyptair- Already in Star
Ethiopian- another thread says that rumours are it's heading towards Star
Kenya Airways- strong relationship with Sky Team.

TAAG Angola?
Royal Air Maroc?
Air Madagascar?
Arik Air Nigeria/ Niger?

Also how's Arik Air doing? when are they expected to commence long haul flying?
Is POS (Trinidad and Tobago) still on their radar?

dont forget Comair of South Africa which operates as a BA franchise carrier and is therefore included in OW

I believe Royal Air Maroc is mentioned from time to time as a possible future Skyteam member ( or associate member )

TAAG Angola is still on the EU bad list so I dont think we will see them in an alliance in the short term

Arik already launched flights to London Heathrow with its leased A340-500, back in December 2008. Flights appear to be full always as Virgin Nigeria has dropped the route and Arik's inflight product is unrivalled (biggest leg room on the route.)

Two additional A340-500s from the same source (HiFly Portugal) are being added shortly to commence New York, Johannesburg and Dubai.
