According to a statement by ECAir, the airliner was seized at Paris (Charles de Gaulle) on April 11.
According to ECAir (translated from French);
“This seizure is considered by Equatorial Congo Airlines as manifestly illegal because it is based on a judgment by opposing parties other ECAir and the amount awarded in this judgment is not due to any hypothesis by Equatorial Congo Airlines. Equatorial Congo Airlines will assert its rights in court to release from the seizure and to obtain compensation for damages in a short time. The company has made arrangements to limit any inconvenience that may be caused to its passengers. Our lawyers are hard at work to recover the Boeing 757-200.”
In the coming weeks, Equatorial Congo Airlines plans to continue to expand its network with the opening of its third intercontinental (Beirut) and new regional destinations (Luanda, Abidjan, Yaounde, Bangui, N’Djamena).
