Turkish Airlines annonce un Istanbul – Djibouti

La compagnie aérienne Turkish Airlines inaugurera le mois prochain une nouvelle liaison entre Istanbul et Djibouti, qui remplacera alors Khartoum sur la route de Mogadiscio.

A parti du 4 septembre 2012, la compagnie nationale turque proposera deux vols par semaine entre l’aéroport d’Istanbul – Atatürk et Djibouti, à bord d’Airbus A320 pouvant embarquer 159 passagers en classe Economie. Les vols décolleront le mardi et le jeudi à 23h25 pour arriver le lendemain à 4h40, puis repartir 50 minutes plus tard pour se poser à 7h05 à Mogadiscio. Les vols retour quitteront la Somalie mercredi et vendredi à 8h30 pour atterrir à 10h05 à Djibouti, puis repartir à 10h55 pour arriver à 16h00 en Turquie. Turkish Airlines dispose des droits de trafic entre Djibouti et la Somalie.

La compagnie de Star Alliance retrouvera à Djibouti les avions d’Air France, arrivés depuis Paris – CDG via Riyad (lundi, jeudi et samedi), Ethiopian Airlines (Addis Abeba), Kenya Airways (Nairobi), la low cost Flydubai (Dubaï) ou la locale Daallo Airlines entre autres. Turkish Airlines s’était posée pour la première fois en vingt ans à Mogadiscio le 6 mars dernier, mais faisait alors escale au Soudan.

Djibouti porte à 204 le nombre de destinations proposées par Turkish Airlines. Outre les membres de son alliance, elle partage ses codes avec entre autres Air India, Air Malta, Etihad Airways, Garuda Indonesia, Luxair, Malaysia Airlines ou Royal Air Maroc.

La cérémonie d’inauguration a eu lieu, côté turc, en présence de plusieurs importants responsables de Turkish Airlines.

C’est un Airbus A320 en provenance de Mogadiscio qui a effectué ce vol inaugural.

Même s’il n’a pas fait de déclaration, le chef de l’Etat djiboutien a tenu à honorer de sa présence cette cérémonie d’inauguration car cette nouvelle liaison répond parfaitement aux intérêts des Djiboutiens.

Comme l’a souligné le ministre de l’Equipement, cette liaison permettra aux Djiboutiens de voyager à moindres frais.

La création par la compagnie turque de sa nouvelle liaison Djibouti-Istanbul est le fruit du raffermissement des relations de coopération et d’amitié entre les deux pays.

Le président Guelleh et son homologue turc Abdullah Gül, qui ont eu des réunions de travail lors du voyage officiel du chef de l’Etat djiboutien en Turquie il y a quelques mois, avaient alors clairement annoncé leur volonté commune de renforcer la coopération bilatérale.

Les deux pays sont liés depuis par des accords bilatéraux et Djibouti a nommé dans la foulée son premier ambassadeur en Turquie.

L’A380 de Turkish Airlines qui a inauguré hier la nouvelle liaison Djibouti-Istanbul, est arrivé à destination dans l’après-midi.

Istanbul, l’une des plus belles villes du monde, est désormais rapidement accessible et pour moins de 599 dollars depuis Djibouti.

08-11-2012 - Transport aérien Après Turkish Airlines, Egypt Air…


Après Turkish Airlines qui dessert notre pays depuis le 9 septembre dernier, Egypt Air, la compagnie aérienne égyptienne, effectuera des vols directs plusieurs fois par semaine ntre la capitale djiboutienne et l’Egypte. Un accord a été signé en ce sens entre le directeur des Transports d’Egypt Air et le directeur de l’Aviation civile.


Un accord a été signé hier entre le directeur de l’Aviation Civile, M. Almis Mahamoud Haid et le directeur du département des transports de la compagnie Egypt Air, M. Khaled Abd el Monem.

La cérémonie de signature de cet accord, qui s’est déroulée au Kempiski Palace Hôtel, a vu la présence de l’ambassadeur d’Egypte accrédité en République de Djibouti, M. Khaled Ahmed Taha.

Cet accord est l’aboutissement de discussions de plusieurs mois dont les dernières rencontres se sont déroulées du 6 au 7 novembre dans la capitale.

A la fin de la cérémonie, le chef de la délégation égyptienne, M. Khaled Abd el Monem, a déclaré à la presse que cet accord permettra aux appareils de leur flotte de desservir Djibouti et de connecter ainsi les deux nations par le biais des vols directs plusieurs fois par semaine.

« Il est indispensable, a-t-il dit, que le trafic aérien égyptien puisse passer par Djibouti, vu sa position géostratégique et le développement impressionnant en cours dans ce pays bien situé dans la corne d’Afrique ».

Il a en outre indiqué que les Djiboutiens pourront profiter des avantages de la compagnie égyptienne en matière de coût.

Selon le directeur de la Direction de l’Aviation Civile (DAC) M. Almis Mahamoud Haid, l’arrivée de ce transporteur pourra être utile aussi bien à l’aéroport international de Djibouti qu’à la nation toute entière en matière de développement.

Notons qu’Egypt Air fait partie des plus anciennes compagnies de transport du monde arabe puisqu’elle existe depuis mai 1932.

Depuis juillet 2008, elle fait partie de Star Alliance (la plus importante alliance du transport aérien existant dans le monde).

Au cours de cette même année, elle a été désignée comme meilleure compagnie aérienne africaine par l’AFRAA (Association des Compagnies Aériennes Africaines) pour avoir réalisé un revenu total de 1,143 milliard de dollars et pour avoir transporté 6,5 millions de passagers.

Ethiopian Airlines inks cargo services deal with Djibouti Airport

Ghana Business News

Ethiopian Airlines has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Djibouti International Airport for the provision of sea-air and air-sea cargo transport of goods in East Africa.

The MoU was signed at Ethiopian Airlines's headquarters Monday, April 22, 2013 between Mr. Tewolde Gebremariam, CEO of Ethiopian, and Mr. Mohamed Yacoub Mahamoud, General Manager of Djibouti International Airport.

According to Ethiopian, the new deal with Djibouti Airport, offers new menu of choice, sea-air multimodal transport services, to shippers, forwarders, and logistics providers in Africa.

““As the largest air cargo service provider in Africa, we are a serious player in moving trade, commerce and investment, which are the engines of fast economic development in the continent.
The cooperation framework with our longtime partner, Djibouti airport, will enable us to offer new menu of choice, sea-air multimodal transport services, to our shippers, forwarders, and logistics providers in Africa,” said Tewolde, CEO of Ethiopian in a statement.

Ethiopian Airlines is the largest cargo operator in Africa flying to 25 destinations across the globe with six dedicated freighters of which two are Boeing 777-200 LR Freighters.

The B777-200LRF is the most technological advanced cargo aircraft with ability to connect any two points in the world carrying 103 tons of cargo with reduced fuel consumption and less emission, the airline says.

Djibouti’s big cargo dream

Posted on July 1, 2013 by Adina Solomon


By John W. McCurry

Djibouti International Airport hopes to become a conduit for air cargo to Africa’s landlocked nations. The airport in the tiny nation of less than one million people on the Horn of Africa took its ambitious plans to the Transport Logistic exhibition in Munich in June. It was the first time the airport had forayed into the world of trade shows.

DIA has big plans for expansion of its cargo infrastructure, and a new airport is scheduled to open in about four years. Airport officials hope that is enough to entice air carriers and logistics specialists to take a long look at Djibouti.

“We are looking for partners,” Moussa Houssein Doualeh, air operations cargo manager for DIA, says. “This is our first trip as an airport. We are trying to catch the rest of the world.”

Djibouti’s air cargo operation is small, just 3,000 tonnes per year. Doualeh hopes the exposure gained in Munich will send those numbers upward in the coming years.

DIA’s facilities, in Doualeh’s words, “do not answer all the requirements” for a significant cargo operation, but that will change later this year when a 4,000-sq.-ft. warehouse with cold storage capabilities opens. Long-range, the plans are more grandiose with a proposed US$600-million project to develop a new airport about 15 miles from Djibouti City. The current airport has just one runway and handles only commercial and military aircraft. A nearby U.S. military base shares the runway.

Djibouti, with the fifth largest container port in Africa, already has a major sea cargo operation, and DIA officials envision development of a sea-air cargo model where products arrive at the Doraleh Container Terminal and are transported to the airport for flights into Africa’s interior. The idea is to entice shippers to bring their sea cargo to Djibouti rather than Dubai.

“Come to Djibouti instead of Dubai,” Doualeh says. “We want to develop a sea-air model and see how we can fit and connect with the landlocked countries in Africa. We want to find partners to bring shipments from the Far East to Djibouti and dispatch them to the landlocked countries.”

Doraleh Container Terminal opened in 2009 and the Djibouti Ports & Free Zones Authority plans further expansion, which will accommodate three million containers per year by 2015. Port officials say this expansion will make the port the largest container terminal on the continent.

Doualeh has talked with Emirates, Etihad Airways and DHL about development of cargo operations at DIA. He says he is optimistic these talks will be fruitful.

Doualeh cites Ethiopia and Nigeria as two significant landlocked markets that could be served with air cargo flights from Djibouti.

“Everything going to Ethiopia comes through Djibouti,” he says. “Eighty million people are being fed by road. We are a very small country, but our seaport is one of the best in the region. We are trying to save time for the shippers, the transporters and the customers. We are working with the seaport to see how we can bring things along with this sea and air movement.”

DIA also envisions air cargo possibilities beyond Africa to Western Europe and the east coast of North and South America.

Doualeh says DIA is prepared to entice air carriers with reduced rates for landings and handling for the first six months.

He says cargo from the Far East takes 80 days to reach Lagos, Nigeria. Developing airfreight infrastructure in Djibouti would allow that time to be reduced drastically.

“It takes just three and a half hours from Djibouti to Lagos by 747. That’s 100 tonnes straight away from Djibouti to Lagos,” Doualeh says. “We need professional logistics people to set it up. The rest will come easy.”

QATAR AIRWAYS TO EXPAND PRESENCE IN AFRICA WITH FLIGHTS TO DJIBOUTI

Thrice-Weekly Flights To Djibouti-Ambouli International Airport Begin July 27

23 Mar 2014

DOHA, Qatar – Qatar Airways today announced a further expansion of its route network in Africa with Djibouti joining its ever-growing list of destinations served direct from the airline’s Doha hub.

Thrice-weekly non-stop flights will operate from Doha to Djibouti beginning from 27 July 2014.

Today’s announcement comes as Qatar Airways prepares for a busy few months ahead with the launch of scheduled flights to Philadelphia and Larnaca in April; Edinburgh and Istanbul Sabiha in May; Miami and Tokyo Haneda in June and Dallas/Fort Worth in July.

Bordered by Ethiopia, Eritrea and Somalia, Djibouti has an economy that is largely concentrated in the service sector and the country has limited international air services – a void Qatar Airways is set to fill with its huge international network of routes via its Doha hub.

“Djibouti is another example of Qatar Airways’ commitment to opening up access to destinations that are largely underserved by international airlines and have great market potential,” said Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer, His Excellency, Mr. Akbar Al Baker.

“Just in September last year we launched thrice-weekly operations to neighbouring Ethiopia. We believe that these exciting destinations in the “Horn of Africa” have great potential linking up with key feeder markets in the Middle East, Europe, Asia and other parts of the world.

“As an airline with an ever expanding global network of 136 destinations, Qatar Airways will be able to fulfil the needs of the travelling public from such markets, and for those wanting to travel there from destinations we serve around the world."

The Doha - Djibouti route will be served with an Airbus A320 featuring up to 12 seats in Business Class and up to 132 seats in Economy. The aircraft features seatback TV screens providing all passengers in both cabins with the next generation interactive onboard entertainment systems.

Schedules:
The DOHA – DJIBOUTI schedules, 3-times-a-week with effect from 27 July 2014 are:-
Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays
Depart Doha QR1437 at 0010 hrs, arrive Djibouti at 0255 hrs
