Given the current tension, do you anticipate another evacuation.

The majority of the foreigners has been evacuated last year in November 2004.

At that time, there was a kind of airlift bridge between Abidjan and Europe.
For example, 9000 French citizens were repatriated in 10 days, and there were until 5 daily special flights operated by Air France, Corsair, Star Airlines etc... + flights from other countries, mainly operated by governments aircraft.

Now, it remains in Ivory Coast: 6000 UN troops, 4000 French soldiers and few foreigners from Europe, USA, South Africa and other African countries.
They work mainly in the cocoa industry, the rubber industry, the oil fields, and they manage factories and companies.

Air France has already cancelled its daily flight (with one stop in Lome, Togo for crew change) but I don't know about SN Brussels, SAA, Kenya Airways, Ethiopian, and MEA.

Emirates has announced starting a flight next February from DXB to Abidjan via Accra 4 times weekly with A343.

EK might find itself getting into a market it isn't prepared for. ABJ has been a very tough market lately.

MEA has had to re-route the return flight from ABJ via ACC to make a crew change, so the route operates BEY-ABJ-ACC-BEY at the moment.

The stop in ACC doesn't pick up or drop off passengers. Just a crew change.
