Coup In Burkina Faso - OUA Closed

I hope Air Burkina can recover from this. I think they recently got two new regional jets. Hopefully crisis will be resolved soon.

A coup has taken place, riots have started, people have already died. And you're worried about a couple of regional jets?
Signature. You just read one.

TK549 is on its way to OUA right now, due at 00:23 (almost 3hr late).

Will it be diverted?
It only departed half an hour ago so surely the airport must be reopened/reopening...

Perhaps it's going to overfly OUA and go directly to BKO?

Really? I'm concerned about people's jobs and the economy of the country.

You may be right, it's currently over Algeria, looks like it's heading more towards Mali.

Pretty much, on these messages boards it is what we worry about. There are places to discuss politics as well.

BF has an economy? Sister in law was assigned to the US Embassy (both old and new) for five years, she had less than pleasant things to say about the state of BF.

AF548 (CDG-OUA) and SN255 (BRU-OUA) were cancelled today, probably the 2 days too!
I've heard on the radio that French Expats should not leave their home until further notice.
Looks like a conflict which will last a while as usual !

Every African country has an Economy. One on which millions of people rely on simply to survive. As for sister in law, I can find zillions of reasons why she could'nt appreciate such a nice but poor country. From lack of language skills, to lack of empathy to lack of basic adaptability to simple arrogance...

Back to the subject first and foremost let's hope that civil casualties are reduced to the minimum. Air traffic comes to distant 2nd place (maybe)

As for war and conflict, this is a rather peaceful country. Notice the relative small amount of casualties during last years succesful uprising...
