New Airline Option for Liberia Travel

Astraeus' twice-weekly service to the west African nation will start from January 15th 2007 from London Gatwick Airport to Monrovia's Roberts International Airport.

As well as connecting the many Liberians living in the UK and Europe, the airline is also aiming to fly Liberians in North American via London.

"We have been analysing the UK-Monrovia market for some time and firmly believe that now is the right time to launch our services. We have a successful history of developing routes between west Africa and the UK and are looking forward to serving Liberia, which is clearly demonstrating its desire for a better future for their citizens," said Astraeus sales director Peter Cox.

Astraeus' development plans include launching additional specialist flights to serve the oil & gas industry, and opening up new markets in West and East Africa, an area long neglected by other British scheduled carriers. It will introduce the first direct flights for over 20 years between London and Monrovia, the capital of Liberia, on December 13. Further announcements on new routes and service developments are expected in the near future.

i spoke with the guy who's running the show for this airline, and he seemed to be afraid that they're taking a big risk with this venture. i hope they do well!
