Mali`s new private airline Sky Mali has obtained the Air Operating License, from the Malian National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC).
The Emirati-backed airline was granted the operating licence on the 20th of July 2020 and is expected to launch domestic flights in the coming future using a Boeing 737-500 registered (ZS-PKV) MSN 25418.
The issuance of the licence comes after the airline recently performed a demonstration flight from Bamako to Kayes. Sky Mali can now commence domestic service in Mali.
Sky Mali is planning on connecting all the major points in the West African country with flights to Kayes, Mopti, Tomboutcou and Gao. The airline is planning on launching scheduled flights once the Covid19 pandemic is under control.
The airline’s Chief Executive Officer El Hadj Baba Haidara said, “Sky Mali is targeting destinations in Central and West Africa such as Gabon, Cameroon, Niger, Congo, Ghana, Senegal and Mauritania for regional expansion.” In the long term the airline has plans of adding Paris on its network.
Haidara added that the start-up plans to add to its fleet with a second Boeing 737-500 and an Embraer ERJ145 and two turboprop engines.
