West African community to launch new regional carrier

Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) announced at Routes Africa plans to establish a regional carrier following the collapse of national carriers over the past decade (Routes Online, 02-Jul-2011). The new venture, called EcoAir, could launch operations in autumn 2011 although sometime in 2012 is a more likely start date. The start-up is likely to be a private venture although some state involvement looks likely.
