Mauritania launches new national airline

2 May 2011

Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz on Wednesday launched the country’s new national airline, Mauritania Airlines, which will be entirely state funded.

Mauritania Airlines was created in 2009 as part of a national strategy of air transport development and the expansion of trade in Africa and Europe, including France and Spain, according to its leaders.

In 2008 Air Mauritania, owned by the state as well as private shareholders, was declared bankrupt. This company was followed by Mauritania Airways which halted operations in December 2010 after being banned from European airspace.
