Royal Air Maroc has decided to end its dispute with the Senegalese govt which caused huge losses and the subsequent collapse of ASI (Air Senegal International).

It seems a new airline will be formed which will be held by private Senegalese investors and by the RAM group. According to the article, it suggests all previous infrastructure held my Air Senegal will move to the newly formed airline including staff. AT will provide technical, commercial and operational support.

I guess it seems like a good move. Hopefully the senegalese govt will not try to get involved as it has previously.

Thoughts ?

This is very good news IMO. Will this new airline use V7's aircraft? I believe they had a couple of 73G's if I'm not mistaken.

They probably will. A couple of aircraft V7 operated where leased from AT and when the agreement broke down, AT decided to add them back into their fleet. I don't see AT needing any spare capacity at the moment, so there is a good chance it could be leased to the new airline. Yup they had 73G's a Dash8 and a single 732.

Very good news. Three or four 737s would do well regionally, and perhaps a 757 or even 767 for flights to Europe.

Quoting Directorguy (Reply 3):

I doubt the new airline would need that kind of capacity. V7 previusly operated 738's on the european routes to Spain and France. Even AT only use 73G's on EU routes, with the exception of the summer 744's to AMS.
