Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, HE Akbar al-Baker, said: "Launching flights to Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire - our fourth new destination in Africa since the start of the pandemic, after having recently launched Abuja in Nigeria; Accra in Ghana; and Luanda in Angola is a significant step in our African growth. This is testament to our commitment to the African continent where we now operate over 100 weekly flights to 25 destinations in 18 countries via our home and hub, Hamad International Airport.
“We thank the government of Côte d’Ivoire for their support to launch these flights, and we look forward to working closely with our partners here to grow this route and support the recovery of tourism and trade in this region. As global travel recovers in 2021, we look forward to further expanding our network and offering more connections to and from Africa.”
The launch of Abidjan also supports increased demand for trade between Côte d’Ivoire and destinations on the Qatar Airways network such as Paris, Beirut and many points in the Indian subcontinent.
Qatar Airways travellers from Côte d’Ivoire can now enjoy new baggage allowances ranging from 46kg for Economy Class split over two pieces and 64kg split over two pieces in Business Class. Flight Schedule Monday, Wednesday, Friday: (All times local)
