Comoros' Int'Air Îles resumes operations

Posted 14 August 2017 · Add Comment

Comoros' Int'Air Îles has resumed operations following a week-long suspension of flights, reports ch-aviation.

 The Comorian carrier suspended all flight operations in late July in protest at what it said was the excessively harsh treatment of local carriers by the Indian Ocean archipelago's civil aviation authority. That treatment, Chief Executive Officer, Seffoudine Inzoudine, said at the time, had resulted in it being forced to return its only jet aircraft, A320-200 ZS-GAS, to South Africa's Global Aviation Operations.

However, on the back of talks and consultations with ANACM, government officials, and President Azali Assoumani, Inzoudine said in a statement that Int'Air Îles would resume inter island domestic flights with effect from August 5

"It is, therefore, in accordance with the commitments made by the Comorian state and the general management of Int'Air Iles, and to prove its good faith, that the company has just decided to gradually resume its activities," the statement said.
