Government of Guinea-Bissau wants a national airline in 2015

26 December 2014

The Secretary of State for Transport and Communications of Guinea-Bissau, João Bernardo Vieira, announced that in 2015 Guinea-Bissau would create its own civil aviation company, according to Portuguese news agency Lusa.

“I personally believe that this will be a reality and I want everyone who is part of the Secretariat of State for Transport and Communications to also have this conviction as a challenge to be won,” urged Bernardo Vieira at the opening of a seminar on the reform of the civil aviation code.

Currently Guinea-Bissau has no flagship airline.

Air links between Guinea-Bissau and Portugal are provided through an agreement with airline EuroAtlantic. In addition to EuroAtlantic, Bissau airport is served by Senegal Airlines, Royal Air Maroc (Morocco) and Asky (private company that connects West African countries). (macauhub/GW)
