Landing of Ethiopian Airlines at Ivato

During the special broadcast last Sunday with the President of the Republic, Andry Rajoelina, the Minister of Public Health, the Minister of Transport, the Minister of Commerce and the Minister of Communication, the President of the Republic said that "From now on, the closure of the airspace of Madagascar will be effective. No passenger can no longer enter Madagascar”. Yet, there was this 05 May an Ethiopian Airlines landing at Ivato with 12 passengers on board.

12 Passengers on board

An Ethiopian Airlines flight arrived at Ivato International Airport, day before yesterday to 13 hours 40 with 12 passengers. This has created a controversy especially at the level of social networks.

Indeed, new passengers disembarked from this plane from Addis Ababa despite the announcement made by the President of the Republic, Andry Rajoelina that no passenger can no longer enter Madagascar. Authorities only allow cargo flights to land at our international airports.

Landing of Ethiopian Airlines at Ivato : Ministry explanations

On national channels, the Minister of Transport, tourism and meteorology, Joel Randriamandranto, shed more light on this yesterday., it was indeed a cargo flight but twelve Malagasy passengers were on board.

These are Boeing crew members 737-800 which is an aircraft leased by Air Madagascar whose contract has expired. They left the Big Island a week ago to take this plane back to Bucharest. Once they brought him back, they have to go back home. Reason why, they took the flight of Ethiopian Airlines. And he adds that these twelve passengers will be quarantined in a large hotel in the capital while awaiting the results of their PCR tests.

Indeed, it makes a cargo flight three times a week between Addis Ababa and Madagascar.

Other flights will land

The Minister recalled that other flights are exceptionally authorized to land soon at Ivato airport in order to transport our athletes who have participated in international competitions..

The same day of Ethiopian Airlines landing at Ivato, 130 passengers took this flight to Addis Ababa, according to information published by Air and Border Police officials. Among which, 80 passengers are Malagasy nationals, including nuns and members of the GNBC national basketball team who will compete in the Afrobasket.

Andry Rajoelina : "No passenger can no longer enter Madagascar"

Yet, the president said : “no passenger will be able to enter the country anymore”.

According to him, the government will no longer consider any request to avoid the entry of new imported cases.

In addition, we have suspended the domestic flights that the Tsaradia Company provided, from Wednesday 5 may. This is in order to limit the rate of contamination of the virus to other regions..

For land transport, transport to closed regions remains suspended. These regions are particularly : Analamanga, Eastern, SAVA, Vakinankaratra, High Matsiatra and Anosy.

As for the transport of goods, they are allowed to continue their activities. Same for cargo flights.
