Massawa Airways: Eritrea's new privately owned airliner
Massawa Airways, a privately owned startup airliner in Eritrea, received delivery of two Beechcraft 1900Ds aircraft to join its existing MA-60 and E3-AAV planes that were delivered from China in December of last year.
According to aviation websites, Massawa Airways is scheduled to begin flights before the country's 22nd independence anniversary this May 24th and will primarily serve domestic and regional destinations.
Based in Massawa International Airport, Massawa Airways becomes the country's third airliner in operation after Nasair Eritrea, a privately owned airliner headed by Nasair Nasreddin Ibrahim and Eritrean Airlines, a state-owned national carrier.
Currently, Nasair Eritrea has 5 planes in operation: 4 Boeing B737-200A and 1 Airbus A320-200, while the Asmara-based Eritrean Airlines has a total of 4 aircraft in operation: 1 Airbus A319-100, 2 Airbus A320-200 and 1 Boeing 767-200ER.
