SAA Offers Flights from Johannesburg to Abidjan

Date: 13 August 2012

In a move to further expand its service offerings across the African continent, South African Airways has added a flight route to Abidjan in Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast) to its service offerings.

The airline will offer flights from Johannesburg to Abidjan twice a week, starting from Friday, 17 August 2012.

Abidjan is the economic capital of Ivory Coast, and is the nation's largest city.  It is also the third largest French-speaking city in the world.

Abidjan is becoming increasingly popular as a business tourism destination in West Africa, and SAA's expanded service offering is set to consolidate South Africa's position as the gateway to Africa for foreign investors and businesspeople.
