AIR MADAGASCAR TO OFFER NEW NOSY BAY SERVICE TO JNB
While Air Madagascar remains on the EU black list and is unable to fly to Europe at present, the airline is nevertheless spreading its wings further into Africa. It was just announced that they will with immediate effect offer a direct service between Nosy Bay and Johannesburg, operating once a week on Saturdays between the coastal city and holiday resort of Madagascar and the commercial capital of South Africa.
Tourism to Madagascar can do with a ‘shot in the arm’ as arrivals have plunged due to the unresolved political situation on the island and the ‘banishment’ by the African Union, which however does not include a travel ban but largely the exclusion from African Union meetings and interaction.
