Two new flights to promote tourism
Being in financial difficulty for a couple of years, Air Madagascar intends to achieve its recovery. Starting from june 26, 2014, the national airline will operate two new fligths to Marseille. Thus, there will be 3 flights per week available serving the destination. This operation is part of Air Madagascar’s contribution to promote tourism in Madagascar. The airline will operate the first direct flight to Nosy Be, one of Madagascar’s leading tourist destination, that will take off from Marseille the june 29. Created in partnership with Nosy Be’s tourism and economic operators, this new flight is aimed, in one hand, to boost local tourism, and in other one, to get the airline’s offers closer to the Mediterranean Sea.
The flight will be operated every sunday and will take off from Marseille at 7:10 PM to arrive at Nosy-Be airport the next day at 6:00 AM. For the return flight operated on monday, the airplane will take off at 11:00 PM from Nosy Be and will land at Marseille’s airport at 7:50 AM the next day. The basic rate for this flight is € 1,050 including VAT. In addition, from June 26, 2014, Air Madagascar also propose a triangular flight between Marseille, Moroni and Antananarivo. The flight Marseille – Moroni – Antananarivo will be operated on thursday and will leave Antananarivo on saturday. The flight with a stopover in Moroni was created in order to meet the comorian’s market needs and to give the airline’s customers more options for their journey in the Southern France. One of EuroAtlantic’s Boeing B767 will operate all the flights on the Marseille – Madagascar route. The two-classes aircraft has a seating capacity of 16 seats for the business class “Baobab” and 234 for the main cabin “Ylang”.
