Côte d’Ivoire, Ivory Coast’s flagship carrier based in Abidjan, has taken delivery of its first A320neo, becoming the first operator of the type in the West-African region. This latest generation aircraft will join Air Côte d’Ivoire’s existing Airbus fleet of six aircraft.

This aircraft will be deployed on Côte d’Ivoire’s network to serve Senegal, Gabon, and Cameroon. Destinations like will be added at a later stage, highlighting the operational flexibility of the A320neo.

Powered by CFM Leap-1A engines, the aircraft is configured in a comfortable two-class layout with 16 in Business and 132 seats in Class. Passengers benefit from the widest cabin of any single-aisle aircraft, high-speed Internet connectivity, and the latest generation in-flight entertainment system.

Cote d’Ivoire’s first A320neo took off from Toulouse carrying 1 ton of humanitarian goods including medical equipment and toys. In partnership with Aviation Sans Frontières and the Airbus Foundation, the mission is part of Côte d’Ivoire’s corporate social responsibility initiative. The transported goods will serve local NGOs in Abidjan, thus supporting the education and health sector in the country.

Cote d’Ivoire has a fleet of ten aircraft, including three A319s and three A320s, serving 25 domestic and destinations in West and Central Africa.
