Oxygene Afrique (Oxygene Airways) (Paris) is a new French airline planning to serve Africa. The start-up carrier has applied to the DGCA for authority to operate passenger flights to the continent.
The new company initially would fly to Bamako and Dakar with two Boeing 767-300s. Cotonou (Benin), Luanda (Angola) and Brazzaville (Congo) are also targeted in the second phase of expansion, if approved.
