Routine international flights to and from Madagascar have resumed following the reopening of the country’s air borders, according to Sandrine Rahantamalala, Ravenala Airports’ director of communications.
Three foreign airlines have “entered air traffic from Madagascar to Antananarivo,” while “three additional firms have taken over Nosy-Be (north), with five weekly frequencies for both Air France and Air Madagascar.”
According to the director of communication, twenty regional flight frequencies are reported within Malagasy territory each week.
For international travelers, the TDR, as well as “social and hygienic distancing measures such as confinement in a medical room,” are required.
Madagascar’s borders have been closed since March 2020 due to the COVID pandemic; however, the government has authorized “a limited opening on March 5, 2022, with severely limited flying frequencies.”
