Re: West and Central African Aviation Thread - 2020

I believe it was implemented by the African Union but you are correct about it being a farce. The problem is that many member states have just ignored it in the interest of protecting local carriers and the AU has no enforcement mechanism. Thanks for the clarification.

SAA adding extra capacity to IAD via Acc ( 5 weekly), this bring the total weekly flights between JNB-ACC to 9.

There is no connections from LAX to anywhere in west Africa via LFW without a long layover.
