On arrival in Malabo, the commander Pablo Nsí Nguema reported that the plane was in perfect condition. “The flights lasted four hours and fifty minutes. It was a flight without passengers, only a crew of four. And I can certify that the plane is in perfect condition and passed all the tests carried out in Ethiopia”, said Nsí Nguema.
The calm comes after the storm. Thus declared the management of the main Equatorial Guinea airline, lamenting the fact that they had been inoperative for two years due to the current health crisis.
“As an aviator and pilot I am very happy. We regret the three weeks that the population have not been able to fly with our company, but we are now back thanks to the Head of State and the Vice-President of the Republic, for their instructions and the efforts they are making so that we can now resume both domestic and international flights”, explained Cruz Nguema Elá Nchama, Director General of Ceiba Intercontinental.
She also explained that they were working little by little to return to being the company that had always transmitted confidence to the population, as stated in the slogan “Travelling together, going forward together”.
“The worst is over, and this plane will not be serviced again for 24 months, and in the first fortnight in March the ATR could arrive to boost this adventure”.
On Saturday the first commercial flight bound for Bata returned. Next week the company is guaranteeing two flights per day, and this could be increased in the event of a charter flight.
In parallel, from next week, flights to Douala, Cotonou, Lomé and soon Libreville, will resume, and “we are working day and night to resume flights to Madrid. It is a strategic route for CEIBA because it generates large income, and we hope that before summer we can achieve this goal”.
The Ceiba Intercontinental team is working hard to resume all the lines that our national carrier had in 2018 and 2019.
