MONROVIA, capital of Liberia, is the latest destination in Africa for Delta Air Lines. A three times per week service from Atlanta begins on 4 September. The direct flight is routed via Accra (Ghana). The service will be operated by a 215-seat Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, equipped with 34 BusinessElite seats and 181 in Economy. This summer, Delta will operate flights to seven African destinations. In addition to Monrovia, Delta will offer services to Abuja (Nigeria), Accra (Ghana), Cairo (Egypt), Dakar (Senegal), Johannesburg (South Africa) and Lagos (Nigeria). Delta also intends to serve Luanda (Angola), Malabo (Equatorial Guinea) and Nairobi (Kenya) once government approvals are received. Until Delta’s entry into Africa in December 2006, no major US carrier had flown to sub-Saharan Africa since Pan Am in the late 1980s. Delta currently remains the only major American carrier to operate services between Africa and the US. www.delta.com
