Equatorial Congo Airlines, the national airline of the Republic of the Congo, has confirmed it will add a Brazzaville-Beirut service to its network.
Launching on June 2nd, the service will initially run bi-weekly on Tuesday and Saturday, departing from Brazzaville.
The route will be run in collaboration with Trans Air Congo, and responds to a growing demand from the Lebanese community living on the African continent as well as merchants.
The third intercontinental route of Equatorial Congo Airlines, after Paris (2013) and Dubai (2014), will be flown on a Boeing 757.
ECAir’s Boeing 757 will take off from Brazzaville at 11:30, arrive in Beirut at 20:20, and take off again from Beirut at 09:30 to land in Brazzaville at 14:30.
“The launch of this third intercontinental route fulfils the promise we made to our passengers: to offer them the ability to connect Central Africa to the Middle East,” explained Fatima Beyina-Moussa, managing director of ECAir.
“Opening up the Beirut destination strengthens relations between the Republic of the Congo and Lebanon. This is good news and a considerable time saver for passengers, particularly business people.”
