According to Aviation Tribune, Air Côte d’Ivoire, Ivory Coast’s national airline based in Abidjan, has signed a firm order for the purchase of an additional A320neo to complete its fleet.
Air Côte d’Ivoire distinguished itself earlier this year by becoming the first African airline to order the A320neo.
“This additional A320neo will allow Air Côte d’Ivoire to truly differentiate its product by offering a higher level of comfort to its customers with new aircraft. Thanks to this new Airbus aircraft, Air Côte d’Ivoire will also improve its operating efficiency to better meet the need for traffic growth,” said General Abdoulaye Coulibaly, Chairman of the Board.
In three years, Air Côte d’Ivoire has tripled its number of passengers. It currently flies to 23 international destinations located in West and Central Africa, and to five domestic destinations. Air Côte d’Ivoire already operates six Airbus aircraft (four A319s and two A320), and this new commitment follows its previous order for four aircraft placed in April.
