A harsh time for Corsair International

Posted 13 November 2018 · Add Comment

Corsair, one of the major actors in the Indian Ocean for nearly 30 years will stop serving the islands of Madagascar and Mayotte.

Corsair was notified of the suspension of its regional traffic rights between the two islands on March 25, 2018. This decision weakens its flight schedule to Madagascar. The airline will therefore no more serve the Madagascar route as from February 9, 2019. Corsair will also stop its flights to Dzaoudzi (Mayotte) as the runway is too short to operate a Boeing 747. The regional package through the partnership between Air Austral and Air Madagascar is gaining momentum.
 
This is a new blow for Corsair which will also stop its flights to Dakar as from early February 2019. Air Senegal SA has announced the return of the country's traffic rights on the Dakar-Paris route which will be launched  early February 2019 with its new A330neo. The Senegalese national airline will compete with Air France.
 
Corsair nevertheless confirms its ambition to pursue its development on the Paris - La Reunion axis with 9 weekly flights. This ultra-competitive route is already served by Air Austral, Air France, XL Airways and French Bee. Corsair will also strengthen its service on the Mauritius route (20% more seats) to meet the demand. The airline will also launch a flight to Miami from Paris.
