South African Airways is proud to announce the launch of flights to Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, its 12th destination.

The route will operate via Accra using an Airbus A330-300 with lie-flat business class seats.

Flights will operate three times a week, departing from Johannesburg on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 11h00 and arriving in Abidjan at 17h00 on the same day, inclusive of a 55-minute stopover in Accra.

Bookings are now open with the first flight from Johannesburg scheduled for November 14.

South African Airways offers the convenience of direct flights to Abidjan. The vast city is the economic capital of the Côte d'Ivoire. The city is a beautiful and mystifying mix of luxury and modesty thanks to rapid and continued industrialisation and urbanisation.

The sprawling metropolis straddles channels and waterways which are connected by bridges and motorways that gives it the appearance of a floating labyrinth. With just about everything to offer visitors from sites, hotels, markets, art galleries and a small but impressive bar and restaurant scene, the metropolitan is a great destination for tourists and business people alike.

Félix-Houphouët-Boigny International Airport is located roughly 16km from the urban centre. The hub is served by various transport options including taxis and metered cabs. Car hire and shuttle facilities are also available at the airport.

SAA flies into Abidjan three times a week and you can rest assured that these flights to Abidjan deliver excellent turnaround times and world-class facilities.

The city, sometimes called the ‘Paris of West Africa’, is dotted with stunning mosques and cathedrals to exemplify the truly extraordinary history of this city which makes Abidjan even more irresistible - it’s definitely an African destination not to be missed.

So, whether it be for business or leisure, make sure Abidjan is on your list of places to visit. For other spectacular destinations in Africa and the world, or for more information about Abidjan, visit our destinations page.
