Ethiopian Mozambique Airlines (EMA) has added the town of Vilankulo, in the southern Mozambican province of Inhambane, to its list of destinations. On 3 March the airline will launch flights between the capital city Maputo and Vilankulo which will operate on Sundays and Tuesdays.
Vilankulo airport is used by many tourists visiting the Bazaruto Archipelago, which is a protected marine conservation area offering sandy beaches and unspoiled coral reefs. It is one of the few places where there is a population of the rare marine mammal, the dugong.
Ethiopian Mozambique Airlines (EMA), the local subsidiary of Ethiopian Airlines, began operating Mozambican domestic routes in December. It now operates scheduled flights between Maputo and Nampula, Tete, Beira, Quelimane, Lichinga, Nacala, Chimoio, and Pemba.
