AF And Snba Return To ABJ

Wed Nov 24, 2004 4:57 am

Air France will resume its twice-weekly (Monday and Friday) flights to Abidjan on 29 November. said Serge Kouakou, responsable for marketing at Air France in Abidjan.
Service gone from daily 777 to 2 weekly..

A technical stopover in Lomé on the Abidjan-Paris leg will enable the change of crews.

Dirk Asselberghs, regional director of SN Brussels Airlines, said the airline would probably take a similar decision before tomorrow (Wednesday) at noon

Somehow, I don't think you're going to have a lot of tourists flying there for a long time...

Most traffic between to ABJ from CDG are not tourist... AF also uses CDGE to transfer passengers
there is a HUGE population of Ivorians in France

While there was a market with the recent developments I doubt that they are cutting capacity too much. Not many people are ready to jump right back in. The damage done will take many years to recover if it does not flare back up.

Sadly the economic boon that created an era of prosperity is likely gone and the poverty will likely fuel more violence.
