Mozambique awards seven carriers domestic route authorities

Posted 11 September 2017 · Add Comment

The Mozambican civil aviation authority (Instituto da Aviação Civil de Moçambique - IACM) has awarded seven carriers domestic Mozambican passenger traffic rights following a tender held earlier this year, reports ch-aviation.

During a press conference in Maputo on Tuesday, September 5, the regulator awarded Ethiopian Airlines and its Southern African unit, Malawian Airlines, cabotage rights, while local operators including CFM - Transportes e Trabalhos Aéreos, TTA - Sociedade de Transporte e Trabalho Aéreo, and Solenta Aviation Mozambique were given the greenlight to start regular passenger flights in competition with LAM - Linhas Aéreas de Moçambique and MEX - Mocambique Expresso. 

Though IACM's chairman João Abreu did not specify the routes allocated, he did state that Ethiopian Airlines wants to offer extensive coverage of Mozambique, while Malawian has applied for only a select number of routes. 

The seven have 180 days to begin operating their requested routes and, in the case of the two foreign airlines, they must first register as Mozambican companies. CFM - Transportes e Trabalhos Aéreos and TTA are also required to regularise their licensing in accordance with Mozambican aviation regulations.
