EWA Air signs commitment for two ATR 72-600s

Mayotte-based carrier EWA Air has today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the acquisition of two ATR 72-600s. The latest-generation turboprops will replace and upgrade their two currently leased ATR 72-500s (above). The airline, a subsidiary of Air Austral, has been an ATR operator since its launch in 2013 and uses its aircraft to connect Mayotte with destinations in Comoros, Madagascar, Mozambique, and Tanzania, providing essential connectivity to passengers travelling for business and leisure.

The aircraft will be equipped with 64 seats with deliveries beginning before the end of this year.

EWA Air, the first Airline Company of Mayotte, was born from the synergy of three partners sharing a common ambition: to contribute to the opening up of the territory and its influence in the Mozambique Channel. The Air Austral Group, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Mayotte and the Ylang Invest Company joined together to respond, thanks to EWA Air, the high expectations of the population regarding travel. Being a subsidiary of Air Austral Group, EWA Air offers its passengers a guarantee in terms of quality of services as well as in term of safety, a top priority for the company.
