Emirates to Increase Flights to Cote D'Ivoire

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 22 April 2010

Emirates is to restart daily flights to the Cote D'Ivoire from 1 May 2010, following increased demand for the West African route.

Under the new schedule, EK flight 787 will leave Dubai each day at 07:30 and arrive at Felix Houphouet Boigny Airport in Abidjan at 14:00. As before, flights to and from Abidjan, served by a 3-class Airbus A340-300, will make a quick stop in Accra, Ghana.

Abidjan is one of the 18 destinations to which Emirates currently flies in Africa, with most passengers flying into the city from Paris, Beirut, Accra, New York and Dubai.

The extra flights will be of particular benefit to passengers with connections to GCC countries, the wider Middle East and the Far East.

The Cote dIvoire, which has Guinea, Mali and Ghana amongst its neighbours, is one of the world's major producers and exporters of cocoa beans, coffee and palm oil. Abidjan is also a large commercial sea port, forming a gateway for the industrial world to and from Western Africa.
