Air : Madagascar Airlines takes off

Rinah Rakotomanga, Vice-Chairman of the Air Madagascar Board of Directors, is optimistic about Madagascar Airlines future. As we can read in an article in L'Express de Madagascar, it gives more details on the future birth of Madagascar Airlines in the coming days.

Madagascar Airlines begins to spread its wings

“Born from the merger between Air Madagascar and Tsaradia, Madagascar Airlines will participate in the reopening of borders to air traffic scheduled for 6 November '., reveals Rinah Rakotomanga, under her cap as vice-president of the Board of Directors of Air Madagascar during a television program hosted by three journalists.

« As a first step, Madagascar Airlines will lease a B787-900, the latest generation of the American aircraft manufacturer, under the ACMI formula (crews and insurance) for long-haul flights. She will use the Air Transport Certificate, CTA, d’Air Madagascar. And an Embraer type E16-90 for regional and domestic flights. »

" From now on, it is the dignity and honor of Madagascar that we will defend and raise to the top. And no longer the company, object of mockery", She said.

Always concerning the fleet, “the two A340s belong to us after negotiations with Air France. They will pass checks. I remind you that before October 2017, where was sealed the strategic partnership contract with Air Austral, the state erased 330 billion in Air Madagascar debt. This was to absorb all the alleged expenses generated by these two A340s”, responds Rinah Rakotomanga about the criticisms around these two devices.

Plus question d’alliance

“Air Madagascar also did not pay their rental fees as early as July 2018. How do these financial charges not incurred but insistently mentioned today, could they decimate the cash flow of Air Madagascar.

In fact, Air Austral did not honor its two commitments. On the 15 millions of dollars in capital, she only paid 12. And no contribution to the current account on 25 millions of dollars promises. This did not prevent Air Austral from having control over the Board of Directors and the general management”, she wanted to point out.

“While Air Austral used funds from the CNaPS and the Rajabaly Group to finalize this agreement. After termination of the contract, the CNaPS took over its assets in the form of shareholding in Madagascar”, she continues. "The CNaPS is used to this kind of financial investment. Its members will have nothing to worry about.. She is in good hands.", supports Rinah Rakotomanga to close this chapter.

Also, Rinah Rakotomanga doesn't want to hear about alliance with anyone anymore. It relies instead on good management in order to succeed with Madagascar Airlines where the others have failed..

« The merger of Air Madagascar with Tsaradia will enable the pooling of operating costs. And it can benefit travelers and tourists. For example, those who depart from Paris to reach Toliara will earn on fares. And no longer have to worry about connecting flights.

We will also adopt new management practices. Air Madagascar now has 600 suppliers, it is unacceptable. Staff reduction will take place by the hundred. The workforce in relation to the number of the fleet no longer meets international standards. Who is from 114 to 120 people for a plane. Voluntary departures occur. And those who have to leave will be supported in their professional retraining”, reassure Rinah Rakotomanga.


“A general manager will be appointed at the head of Madagascar Airlines. Every employee, from the bottom of the ladder to the top of the hierarchy, will have to sign a performance contract and an obligation of result. Quality-reliability-punctuality, this is the trilogy to offer to customers. And we will review the benefits of employees, discounted trips for family members ».

Therefore, she is convinced of the success of the rescue operation. “These structural reforms are necessary and deserve the support of those concerned. The related studies have been carried out meticulously. And I believe it. »
