Air Burkina flying into financial turbulence

The government of Burkina Faso in West Africa wants to set up a dialogue with the Aga Khan Fund for economic development, the owner of Air Burkina, about the financial and economic state of the airline. The transport ministry in the country’s capital Ouagadougou is concerned about reducing the fleet, which is currently comprised of only four aircraft, as well as the questionable alliances with Air Mali and most lately Air Côte d'Ivoire, plus the shrinkage of the scheduled network from the home hub to nine destinations in eight countries: Bobo-Dioulasso (Burkina Faso), Abidjan (Ivory Coast), Accra (Ghana), Bamako (Mali), Cotonou (Benin), Dakar (Senegal), Lomé (Togo), Niamey (Niger) und Paris-Orly (France).
