Curious initiative of the ECOWAS

Curious initiative of the ECOWAS

The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) announced its intention to create a regional airline to better meet the challenges of transport in the subregion, on Friday.
The new carrier would be a business run by the private sector, said the Chairman of the Commission, James Gbeho.
"It has become increasingly difficult to fly from one country to another within the subregion, the airlines being so erratic in their timing, so we gather to operationalize ECOAIR," said Gbeho.
One can only wonder at the statements of James Gbeho as a regional airline already exists, Asky with its headquarters in Togo.
Launched in January 2010, the carrier, which serves 18 destinations in West Africa and Central Africa, was quite successful (250,000 passengers in mid-March 2011). Therefore, Ecowas would benefit from financiallly supporting Asky rather than trying to create EcoAir.
The organization should also ensure compliance by certain Member States, the provisions of Open Sky. From 18 months, Asky is still waiting for traffic rights to Dakar !
