Afrijet adds Malabo to its Central African network Afrijet adds Malabo to its Central African network

Afrijet resumed its regional flights last February. Since then, the Gabonese carrier has been working to densify its offer in Central Africa, its favourite market where it is now one of the most dynamic operators.

Afrijet continues to expand its network. The private Gabonese company has announced the opening of a new route to Malabo in Equatorial Guinea. The route is offered once a week on Mondays, following the Libreville - Malabo-Douala route. On the section between the Equatorial Guinean capital and the Cameroonian economic metropolis, Afrijet will be competing with Ceiba International and Cronos Airlines. On its booking website, the inaugural flight is scheduled for Monday 23 August.

According to the timetable, flight J7282 will depart from Leon Mba International Airport at 12:30 and land in Malabo at 13:20 local time. In the opposite direction, flight J7283 will leave Equatorial Guinea at 14:00, make a stopover in Douala, to arrive in the Gabonese capital at 16:15.

Since the resumption of its regional flights last February, Afrijet has resumed its services to Congo (Brazzaville, Pointe Noire), Sao Tome and Cameroon (Douala, Yaounde).

On the domestic front, Afrijet also serves Port-Gentil and Franceville from Libreville. On all these routes, it uses its ATR passenger fleet, which includes three ATR72s and one ATR42. The carrier also has an all-cargo ATR72-500, which will be delivered in September 2020, for its cargo operations.  It should be noted that on 23 August, Malabo will also see the arrival of Asky Airlines. The Togolese company had not served the Equatorial Guinean capital for 9 years.
