Bolloré Logistics charters its 100th flight between Europe and Africa via its WARA dedicated services offer

(Ecofin Agency) - On 9 April, Bolloré Logistics chartered its 100th weekly freight cargo flight between Europe and West Africa, one year after the air bridge was put in place to compensate for the restrictions on transport resulting from the Covid-19 health crisis. Bolloré Logistics is using this service to provide end-to-end shipment of goods to their final destination via its vast integrated logistics network in Africa.

WARA Air Service continues to operate two to three weekly flights from Bolloré Logistics’ European hub in Liège (Belgium). It serves the destinations of Abidjan (Côte d’Ivoire), Bamako (Mali), Accra (Ghana), Freetown (Sierra Leone), Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso), Conakry (Guinea), Niamey (Niger), Monrovia (Liberia) and Nouakchott (Mauritania).

More than 4,000 tonnes of goods have been transported via the air bridge, including large quantities of humanitarian aid products, health materials and equipment, medical and food products, spare parts, telecoms equipment and other everyday consumer goods.

In addition, WARA Air Service has helped to support the agricultural sector, delivering more than 110 tonnes of mangoes from Abidjan and Ouagadougou airports to Europe in 2020. This exceptional performance has been made possible by the synergies between Bolloré Logistics’ operational teams throughout the various links in the export chain.

This service is a real solution for our customers who rely on us to take care of their transport operations to Africa. It also offers greater flexibility with genuine added value in an uncertain context that does not currently allow for a true resumption of air traffic,” says Dirk Jacobs, CEO of Bolloré Logistics Belgium.
