EWA Air has approved the purchase of two ATR 72-600s at the aircraft manufacturer's headquarters in Toulouse.

The ceremony was attended by Marie Joseph Malé, CEO of Air Austral and President of Ewa Air, and Ayub Ingar, Chief Operating Officer of EWA Air.

These 2 ATR 72-600 will be registered in Mayotte (Indian Ocean) by the DGAC. This is an unprecedented acquisition in the history of the Mahoran airline as these two aircraft will fully belong to it. The 2 ATR72-600 will join Mayotte on December 31, 2018 after a stop  in Malta and Aswan and then in Addis Ababa and Dar Es Salam.

EWA Air, the first Airline Company of Mayotte, was born from the synergy of 3 partners sharing a common ambition: to contribute to the opening up of the territory and its influence in the Mozambique Channel. The Air Austral Group, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Mayotte and the Ylang Invest Company joined together to respond the high expectations of the population regarding travel.
