Toumaï Air Tchad Commence Operations From Abu Dhabi

ABU Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC), the owner-operator of Al Ain International Airport, has welcomed its latest airline to operate services from the Emirate in the form of Toumaï Air Tchad.

The national carrier of Chad, the North African airline, operates from its main home base of N’Djamena International Airport and will initially start with freighter operations between Al Ain International Airport and Swansboro, North Carolina, USA.

Initially operating up to two flights per week from Al Ain International Airport, Toumaï Air Tchad will also become the second cargo airline to start operations from Abu Dhabi’s second major airport in 2008.

Mohammed Al Bulooki, vice-president of airline marketing and aeronautical revenue for ADAC, said: “The strategic location of Al Ain International Airport makes it a natural hub for freighter companies flying into the UAE, as well as it acting as a desirable short and long-haul hub for regional or international freight.”
