Air Côte d’Ivoire just announced that direct flights from Abidjan to Abuja would be possible–starting from February 1, 2016, on a three-time per week basis (Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays).

The airline is already operating flights to Nigeria, notably from Abidjan to Lagos.

The Abidjan-Abuja flight costs FCFA183, 000 without tax while that to Lagos costs FCFA220,000, VAT included.

Air Côte d’Ivoire currently operates flights to 23 African countries and has in its fleet three Airbus A319 and an Airbus A320 for the regional network, whereas two bombardiers Dash 8 Q400 serve the domestic network. Nigeria is the Cote d’Ivoire’s first commercial partner since 2008.
