► BURKINA FASO: Cargolux to start weekly Ouagadougou flights from 16 April.

Luxembourg's Cargolux (CV) Airlines International S.A. has announced that, in addition to starting Tripoli flights from 16 April, it will start weekly Wednesday  flights to Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso, on 24 April. Often called the centre of the nation, Ouagadougou is the country’s largest city; its main industries are food processing and textiles.

The service is spurred by growing demand from markets in France, as well as in Asia and the Americas. Supplies and equipment for the mining industries in Burkina Faso are among the main commodities whose delivery is dependent upon airfreight owing to the landlocked geographical position of the country.

Exports from Burkina Faso primarily include perishable goods – mainly fresh beans and mangoes. Cargolux flight CV8043/CV8053 offers shippers in this region the fastest and most comfortable connection to the major markets in Europe and all points beyond in the worldwide Cargolux network.
