Air Burkina About Air Burkina

In the capital of Burkina Faso, Ouagadougou, the airline with its current name Air Burkina started its air traffic as a joint venture Air Volta in 1967. The founding members of the joint venture were the Burkinabe government, the French airline Union de Transports Aériens and some private investors. The airline first flights are domestic and link Ouagadougou to Dori, Bobo-Dioulasso and Gorom-Gorom. Until 1978, Air Burkina only flew with rented aircraft, but received its first aircraft of its own with the EmbraerEMB 110. With the purchase of a new Fokker F-28, she further expanded her fleet and was thus able to serve new destinations.

After the Sankarist revolution, named after the officer Thomas Sankara, in 1983, the airline was largely nationalized. As a result of the revolution, the country was renamed from Upper Volta to Burkina Faso and the airline was also given a new name with Air Burkina. Air Burkina did not manage to establish itself successfully in the market on its own and the debt burden grew steadily. For several years, the company developed by opening new routes (notably to Libreville) and by signing codeshare agreements (with ASKY Airlines and Air France).

In 2010, Air Burkina obtained its IOSA (IATA Operational Safety Audit) certification. It is the first French-speaking company in West and Central Africa to receive it. In 2017, the future of the company is threatened by the cessation of management of the company by Agha Khan for the benefit of the Burkinabé government. However, the company continues to develop by trying to open up to other African countries. Air Burkina does not offer its passengers a frequent flyer program and is not a member of an alliance.
