Souaré Antonio, a wealthy Guinean businessman, is hoping to set up a national airline for the small West African country, reports ch-aviation.

Antonio met with Guinea’s National Directorate of Civil Aviation (DNAC) on November 26 to discuss the requirements of setting up the company, which would be called Guinea Airlines

Souaré also spoke of Chinese partners who could be willing to invest in improving airport facilities in Conakry, Guinea’s capital.

If it successfully launches, Guinea Airlines would first service local destinations such as Labe, Kankan or N'Zérékoré before looking to other West African points.
