North American Airlines to launch service to Gambia and Ghana.


North American Airlines Inc, a wholly owned subsidiary of World Air Holdings Inc (Nasdaq: WLDA), is launching a weekly scheduled service between Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport and Banjul, Gambia and Accra, Ghana from 4 June 2006.

The services are subject to approval from Gambia's government and will operate direct to Banjul and continue to Accra. North American is reportedly the only US airline serving Africa with scheduled services, currently operating direct between New York's John F Kennedy International Airport and Accra.

North American will operate the service with Boeing 767-300ER aircraft.
