Bolloré Logistics’ special WARA Air Service has been extended until 31 July 2020 and may be extended further if cargo air freight capacity restrictions remain in place.
To respond to air transport demand and continue ensuring the continuity of supply to the African continent, Bolloré Logistics has for three months provided regular weekly links between Europe and the countries of West Africa with their WARA air service.
The schedule can be found here.
Every week, freight is transported via two or three all-cargo flights from Bolloré Logistics’ airport hubs in Liège, Belgium, and at Roissy Charles-de-Gaulle, France. They serve the destinations of Abidjan (Côte d’Ivoire), Bamako (Mali), Accra (Ghana), Freetown (Sierra Leone), Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso), Conakry (Guinea), Niamey (Niger), Monrovia (Liberia) and Nouakchott (Mauritania).
Since the introduction of transport restrictions, some 30 flights have already ensured the reliable and secure shipment of 1,800 tonnes of goods intended for humanitarian aid, health materials and equipment, medical and food products, spare parts, telecoms equipment and other daily consumer goods. For example, over 100 tonnes of mangos have been exported from Africa to Europe.
