History[edit]

Equatair was established in December 2004. Its predecessor Aerolíneas de Guinea Ecuatorial was closed by order of the government and its Antonov aircraft was used to create Equatair. The aircraft was subsequently involved in a fatal accident,[1] thus leaving the airline without any aircraft. In 2006 Equatair was therefore disestablished.

Accidents and incidents[edit]

On 16 July 2005, An Antonov 24 crashed into a mountainous area near Baney killing all 60 passengers and crew on board.
