Air Côte d’Ivoire, the Ivory Coast’s flagship airline based in Abidjan, received its new A320 at a ceremony that was held at the Airbus Delivery Centre in Toulouse on Monday 17 July. This ceremony was jointly presided over by Didier Evrard, Airbus Executive Vice President Programmes and General Abdoulaye Coulibaly, Chairman of Air Côte d’Ivoire’s Board of Directors.

Air Côte d’Ivoire had already chosen the A320 family because of its exceptionally comfortable cabin, low operating costs and excellent fuel consumption performance. It already operates six Airbus aircraft (four A319s and two A320) in the framework of a leasing contract. Air Côte d’Ivoire operates 25 different domestic routes in West Africa and Central Africa.

The cabin of the aircraft being delivered today is configured in two classes (16 business class and 132 economy class seats). The business class offering provides an unbeatable level of comfort with the new “Celeste” seat provided by Stelia Aerospace, while the economy class provides a high level of service, particularly in terms of the lighting system and internet connectivity. 

Air Côte d’Ivoire currently flies to 20 international destinations located in West and Central Africa, and to five domestic destinations.
