Congo airline launched

ECAir (Equatorial Congo Airlines), the new national flag carrier of the Republic of the Congo, entered into service and took-off on 24 September 2011 with its premiere flight between the country’s capital Brazzaville and the port city of Pointe-Noire.  Lufthansa Consulting managed the complete start-up process preparation and thus continues its successful co-operation with the Congolese Government. In previous projects the consultancy service supervised the development of the country’s three main airports and  'Airport City' at Brazzaville named Maya Maya Village.


ECAir will fly three times a day, seven days a week, on the Brazzaville – Pointe-Noire route with a Boeing 737-300, configured 12 Business Class seats and 108 Economy.  Operational support is supplied by the Swiss company PrivatAir, a long-time associate with the Lufthansa Group.  The opening of further routes to international destinations and the acquisition of additional aircraft are planned. www.flyecair.com
