It's starting to look like a bleak week for aviation as Air Algerie has said it's lost contact with one of its planes flying from Burkina Faso , no more detail than that at the moment.

Air Algerie - Algeria's national airline - says it has lost contact with one of its planes flying from Burkina Faso.
Contact was lost about 50 minutes after take-off from Ouagadougou, the airline is quoted by Algeria's state news agency as saying.
The passenger airline was bound for Algiers, it added.

Reuters report suggests there were 110 passengers and six crew members aboard the aircraft.


Spanish airline Swiftair was said to be operating the flight chartered by Air Algerie. Swiftair has confirmed there were 110 passengers and six crew members aboard the aircraft.

On the french news website le figaro it gives a bit more information.

It states that the plane took off at 01h 55 gmt and they lost contact after 50 minutes. The plane was supposed to land at 05h50 this morning

Le figaro

Why has it taken so long to report this plane lost?

It's like we're being mentally conditioned not to fly.

I have family flying over from Spain at the end of the month , I know statistically it's the safest form of transport but with all the problems recently it will be a nervous time for me until the land.

We can only hope for the best for the 116 on board, things aren't looking promising though.

It's showing up on EDIS as a "vehicle accident".

Latest update from Algerie company source.

An unnamed Air Algerie company source, speaking to AFP news agency, said: "The plane was not far from the Algerian frontier when the crew was asked to make a detour because of poor visibility and to prevent the risk of collision with another aircraft on the Algiers-Bamako route."

"Contact was lost after the change of course."

Four months ago MH370 vanished and we still have no clues as to what happened.
Last month 13 planes vanished from radars over Europe.
A few days ago a plane was shot down over Ukraine (still wondering about why).
Now another plane has disappeared over North Africa.

I don't remember ever reading about so many aviation disasters and mysteries in such short period of time.

Do you have any links ? I can't find the info you mentioned any where,

Airlines had been warned not to fly over Mali in recent days, Sky News understands. However, a senior French official said it is unlikely that fighters in Mali could shoot down a plane. They are known to have shoulder-fired weapons which could not hit an aircraft travelling at a cruising altitude of some 33,000ft. Sky's Alistair Bunkall said there are reports in the Algerian media that the plane crashed after running out of fuel. But given the plane was 50 minutes - or about 300 miles - into its journey that is unlikely to be a cause, he said. Swiftair has a fleet of more than 30 planes flying in Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
