On June 28, 2023, a Corsair Airbus will land on the tarmac at Ivato. The French airline, specializing in serving the overseas departments, had stopped its flights to Madagascar in 2019.
The health situation, the economic crisis linked to the Ukrainian conflict and the ups and downs in oil prices have delayed Corsair’s return. This will be done in three months, as confirmed by Pascal de Izaguirre, the CEO: “Serving Antananarivo is part of the company’s history. Corsair’s first Paris-Orly/Antananarivo flight dates back to November 2, 1996. The Reunion/Antananarivo line was opened in 2017.”
