Mauritania Airlines International returns to the EU after a three-year ban

  • Mauritania Airlines International inaugurated thrice-weekly services on the route from Nouakchott (NKC) to Gran Canaria (LPA) on 8 May, marking the end of a three-year ban from the European skies. Twice-weekly frequencies are operated via Nouadhibou (NDB), Mauritania’s second largest city located on the Atlantic coast near the country’s border to Western Sahara. Mauritania Airlines International operates the service using 737-500s in competition with Iberia’s twice-weekly departures. The Mauritanian carrier is considering further expansion in Europe, with France being the most likely next country market it enters.
