to reconsider plans for aeroplanes fleet renewal due to the pandemic. Some of the planned deliveries will be delayed as the carrier focus on a handful of domestic and international routes until demand returns. The carrier had aimed to end 2020 with 42 planes.
is preparing to cancel “many” of the passenger flights it has repurposed to carry only freight, as the air cargo market is weakening.

Cape Verde has decided to postpone the date for the reopening of its borders by one month until August 2020.
countries rushing to revive their economies and reopen their borders after months of coronavirus restrictions are prepared to block Americans from entering because the US has failed to control the scourge.
Africans countries are not hurry to reopen their boarders. Sanitary situation is not the same, depending countries. Situation is not the same in Cameroon and in Namibia. The peak could be reach, in August or September 2020, but it's hard to predict, so we have to be prudent. That's probably why some countries, wan't to reopen their boardes before September (Mauritius and probably Kenya)
Porbably North Africans countries will be the 1st country to reopen their boarders, in early July 2020, but probaly with huge controls at the arrival (my opinion).
Currently Air France has confirmed for July-August Conakry, Cotonou, Douala, Yaoundé, Nouakchott et Tunis (if boarders reopen). For others, AF still negotiating with Africans states.
Air France, Brussels Airlines and Turkish Airlines are the 3 airlines with an "amibtious" program for Africa.
Few Africans airlines have started to publish timetables for their intra African destinations. Same thing for Midle East aairlines after pubblished an amibtious program for Africa, Emirates has canceled the resumption of its flights to Africa. https://www.emirates.com/fr/english/hel ... -services/
