The Plenary debated the departure of Air France after its Transport Committee headed by Hon. Aaron B. Vincent made a report in today's Session.
The committee's report among other things stressed that Air France departed Liberia because it claimed that it is not raising the expected interest.
Hon. Vincent speaking to his colleagues stressed that the Airline has the right to leave Liberia if its economic interest is at stake. He said what would have been a problem is, if the Airline was indebted to the country. But his Committee findings revealed that the company is free from every tax and is at liberty to leave Liberia.
Air France accordingly to the Ministry of Transport has been operating this route for three years now, but Liberia was never able to breakeven due to poor load factors to and from Monrovia.
