1-Oct-2010 11:03 AM

South African Airways, EgyptAir and Ethopian Airlines are considering an African JV agreement, under the Star Alliance banner, according to Lufthansa CEO-designate Christoph Franz (AFP/Afrique Jet, 29-Sep-2010). Lufthansa could support the project financially. SAA is expected to make an announcement later in 2010 about establishing a new carrier that will target operations in central African countries such as Gabon, Cameroon, Chad, Democratic Republic of Congo, Sao Tome & Principe and the Central African Republic.
