British Airways Flight Suspensions To Sierra Leone, Liberia Hindering Ebola Efforts, Aid Agencies Say

The Guardian: British Airways accused of hampering Ebola aid effort in West Africa
“…In August, BA announced it was halting flights to and from Sierra Leone and Liberia until December. It has now extended that suspension until the end of March. Médecins Sans Frontières, whose volunteer doctors have been on the frontline of the epidemic from the start, and Save the Children, which will run a new treatment center in Sierra Leone built by the U.K. military, said BA’s decision was causing them problems and sending the wrong message to the world and to people in the region…” (Boseley, 10/7).
