The national carrier Ceiba Intercontinental began on Sunday, March 29, a new route with N’Djamena as the destination. The Equatorial Guinean delegation that traveled to the Chadian capital to perform the relevant formalities was headed by the Delegate Minister of Civil Aviation, Fausto Abeso Fuma. According to the company, the flights will be twice a week (Tuesdays and Sundays) between Malabo-Douala-N’Djamena and vice versa.
The Boeing 737-800 of the company Ceiba Intercontinental with 167 seats, called Evinayong, departed from Malabo International Airport at 10:30 a.m. last Sunday, March 29, bound for Chad, to make the necessary formalities and visit the headquarters of this organization in the capital. On board this modern reactor traveled over twenty passengers and a senior Government delegation headed by the Delegate Minister of Civil Aviation, Fausto Abeso Fuma, who was assisted at all times by the director general of the airline, Bienvenido Esono Abeso Okomo.
This Equatorial Guinean representation landed first in the Douala International Airport, where they were greeted by several Equatorial Guinean authorities residing in the Cameroonian town and the aviation sector. The stay of the delegation in that locality was brief; as the company already has a direct flight from Malabo.
One hour and forty-five minutes later, Abeso Fuma and his companions landed in the Hassan Djamous International Airport of N’Djamena, where the Secretary of State of Chad for Transportation and Aviation, Haoua Acyl, welcomed them, along with members of the Equatorial Guinean Embassy in that nation, led by their ambassador, Enrique Nsue Anguesomo, among other authorities.
The terminal of the central African country was the venue of the five speeches of the ceremony pronounced by the authorities of Equatorial Guinea and Chad. These speeches were offered to media such as CRTV and Canal 2, both of Cameroon; www.guineaecuatorialpress.com; TVGE; Asonga RTV and Ekos of Equatorial Guinea; the Pan-African channel Afrique Media; TV Chad and others.
The presentations were led by Nsue Anguesomo; followed by the Ambassador of Chad in Equatorial Guinea, Ngaryanan Djague Nahari; the Director General of Ceiba, Bienvenido Esono Abeso; the Delegate Minister of Civil Aviation, Fausto Abeso Fuma, and Secretary of State, Haoua Acyl.
Nsue Anguesomo and Abeso Fuma, as officers of the political sector, highlighted once again the importance and effort of the President of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea, Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, in increasingly extending the bonds that unite our country with Africa and the rest of the world.
The Director General of Ceiba highlighted the efforts, challenges and achievements that the company is obtaining under his charge, and also emphasized that the aim of this organization is to contribute to the growth of Equatorial Guinea. “We are proud of the growth being experienced by our country, the reason we are working under the reins of the President. As an aviation organization, we must earn the trust of our customers; which is why we are acquiring aircraft in which our passengers can fly in comfort,” he said.
Haoua Acyl, in her speech, revealed the importance of this new link, since, as she said, bilateral relations between countries should grow and extend to all possible sectors: “First, I thank the President of Equatorial Guinea and that of Chad for this big step and the heads of Ceiba for the growth and trust they are gaining every day. As head of the aviation sector in my country, I will ensure, along with my colleagues, that the activities to be performed by this company here in Chad be carried out with total normality.”
The Ceiba company headquarters in N’Djamena are in the Charles de Gaulle Avenue and for now share an office with the flight agency Maiba Airways.
It should be noted that currently Ceiba operates internationally in Madrid, Accra, Douala, Brazzaville, Libreville, Sao Tome and Principe, Abidjan and Lome; and its next targets are to Lisbon, Casablanca, Las Palmas, Luanda and Johannesburg.
The event was attended by several national figures, including the Director General of the Aviation Authority, Leandro Miko Angue, and the counselor of the Embassy of Equatorial Guinea in Chad, Gaspar Nguere Micha, among others.
