Posted 16 January 2018 · Add Comment

Four start-up carriers have applied to the Comorian government for operating licences involving both domestic and international services, ch-aviation.

The director general of the Comorian civil aviation authority (Agence Nationale de l'Aviation Civile et de la Météorologie - ANACM), Yahaya Mohamed, said that among the prospective entrants are Air Corail, Vigor Aviationn, Ndzuani Air, and Hawani Aviation.

Of the four, Air Corail has completed its AOC certification and is now looking to secure its Air Services Licence. It aims to commence operations in March using a CRJ-100 and a B767 serving Mauritius, Nossi-Be, South Africa, Kenya, and Mozambique regionally and Marseilles in France internationally.

Vigor Aviation is linked to Tanzanian hospitality firm Vigor Group and, according to Minister of Transport Salim Dahalani, has secured its AOC and is looking to start inter-island services using a pair of Cessna 208B Grand Caravans.

Ndzuani Air is also looking at operating domestic Comorian flights albeit using AeroJet as a capacity provider. As such, Mohamed said that authorization would not be granted to Ndzuani Air, but rather to AeroJet.

Hawani Aviation is also looking to start domestic flights but is reportedly only at the beginning of its certification procedures.
