Air Algeria Titters on the Edge

Air Algeria Titters on the Edge

Algeria’s flagship carrier, Air Algérie is on the verge of bankruptcy due to corruption and inefficient leadership, Algerian media wrote.

The crisis hitting the carrier has prompted the government to inject 2 billion dollars to pay debt and acquire new aircrafts but the company remains crippled due to a lack of strategy and vision.

Air Algeria is also not doing enough to improve its services. Skytrax certified it with only a 2-star airline rating for the quality of its onboard product and staff service.

Algeria’s flag-carrier currently deploys 58 passenger planes: 25 Boeing 737-800s, two 737-700C convertibles, five 737-600s, three 767-300s, 12 ATR 72-500s, three ATR 72-600s and eight A330-200s.
