Cronos adds Port Harcourt to route network

Posted 29 April 2013 · Add Comment

Equatorial Guinea-based carrier, Cronos Airlines, is now including Port Harcourt, capital of Nigeria's Rivers State, on its route network.

And, according to the airline’s website, Abidjan – the economic and former official capital of Ivory Coast – could soon be another new destination.

The airline has opened the Malabo-Port Harcourt route in conjunction with Nigeria’s Peacock Travels and Tours Limited

The development followed an agreement inked recently by the two companies. With this, Peacock has now obtained the exclusive general sales agency (GSA) right to issue the airline’s tickets all over Nigeria.

The new air link between Port Harcourt and Malabo, which lasts 45 minutes, offers an alternative for traders who, up to now, had travelled by ship.

Others expected to use the route include business executives and oil exploration workers.
