Air France has made a significant operational adjustment by temporarily suspending flights between Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, and Bamako, Mali, effective until August 11. This move comes as a direct response to the military regime’s decision in Niger Republic to close the nation’s airspace, which took effect on Sunday.

The military regime in Niger opted to close its airspace as a precautionary measure against potential external threats, coinciding with the culmination of the ECOWAS 7-day ultimatum on Sunday at midnight.

Amidst this backdrop, tensions within Niger Republic have surged over the past 12 hours, underscoring the critical nature of the situation. The closure of regional airspace and the heightened atmosphere of uncertainty have prompted Air France to take this temporary measure, prioritizing the safety and security of its passengers and operations.
