Equatorial Congo Airlines (ECAir), the national airline of the Republic of the Congo, is launching scheduled Brazzaville-Bamako-Dakar service on March 22 as part of a network expansion effort within Africa.
Bamako (Republic of Mali) and Dakar (Republic of Senegal) are two major West African capital cities. The airline hopes that the new service will strengthen the number of exchanges and level of cooperation between Congo, Mali and Senegal, and with the rest of West Africa in general.
Flights to Bamako and Dakar will be operated by B757-200 until 1 June, then by Boeing 737-700.
“The inauguration of these two new flight routes to Bamako and Dakar, just a few weeks after the inauguration of Libreville as a destination and the establishment of a daily flight between Brazzaville/Paris and Brazzaville/Dubai, will see us strengthen our presence on the continent,” said Fatima Beyina-Moussa, managing director of Equatorial Congo Airlines.
