President George M. Weah has informed the Vice President of Air France that the Liberian government intends to implement its new visa policy before the end of the year. 

He said under the new scheme, those intending to apply for Liberian visa will be able to do so online or upon arrival at the Roberts International Airport, the newly-built gateway to the West African nation.

The Liberian leader was speaking during a meeting with the Vice President of Air France, Mr. Henri Hourcade, on the sidelines of the Paris Peace Forum convening in the French capital.

The President thanked Air France for agreeing to resume the Liberian route – five years after they departed the country.

President Weah said he’s hopeful that Liberia can reclaim its position as an aviation hub for regional travels with the construction of a new terminal building and upgrades to the runway.

He informed the Air France VP of discussions between the Liberian Airport Authority and an American investor for the setting up of an aircraft maintenance center at the Roberts International Airport, noting that the plans are “well advanced.”

President Weah also asked that Air France have their flight crews stay over in Liberia when they start official operations.

For his part, Mr. Hourcade said that with the upgrades to the airport, the country has restored its place as a go-to destination for international airlines.

He said the airline will start selling tickets to Monrovia 10 days ahead of its debut flight in April, 2020.

Liberian Transport Minister Samuel Wlue had said that the resumption of Air France’s Monrovia route was an “expression of confidence in the Liberian economy.”

Speaking following the conclusion of talks on flight resumption earlier this month, Minister Wlue said that the government intends to make the best use of this opportunity.
