Libreville gets another European link

LIBREVILLE, capital of Gabon, which is only currently linked to Europe via Air France and at Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG), is to gain a five times per week service from Frankfurt.  From Wednesday 15 July Lufthansa is to add the destination to its current Accra (Ghana) flights using a three-class Airbus A340.  Gabon has extensive petroleum and manganese reserves and is an important exporter of timber.  Through its trade in raw materials with companies in the United States, China and Europe, the country has an above-average GDP.  Gabon lies on the Atlantic coast of Central Africa and straddles the Equator.  Libreville is a port city with a population of more than half a million.  Lufthansa now offers customers flights to 16 destinations across Africa. www.lufthansa.com
