Abidjan is now a secondary, virtual base for Senegal Airlines. With the launch of two further routes in the last week, the airline now serves six destinations from the largest city in Côte d’Ivoire.
- Senegal Airlines, the West African country’s new national airline launched earlier this year, launched two new stopping services from its Dakar (DKR) base in the last week. Five times weekly, the airline flies its 136-seat A320s to Abidjan (ABJ), the largest city in Ivory Coast, competing with Kenya Airways’ three weekly flights. As of 16 August, three flights a week continue to Cotonou (COO), the largest city in Benin. These flights compete with Air Ivoire and Air Nigeria’s each twice-weekly flights. As of the following day, 17 August, Senegal Airlines each week continues twice from Abidjan to Libreville (LBV), the capital of Gabon.
