A HELICOPTER service linking Ceuta and Algeciras may resume in November.
Helicopter company SAAR hopes to reconnect the African-based enclave with the Spanish mainland after rival company Cathelicopters terminated the service back in June 2014.
SAAR’s 10-man Bell 412 helicopters are light enough to land at Algeciras heliport, which is unable to hold the company’s 30-man Sikorsky S92 weight.
Reopening the route requires the approval of Spain’s Civil Aviation. If approval is granted, the company would also reopen the Ceuta to Malaga route.
