The national carrier of the State of Qatar continues to rebuild its network announcing it will operate three weekly flights to Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire via Accra from June 16, 2021. This will become the fourth new destination in Africa announced by Qatar Airways since the onset of the pandemic.
This new service to Abidjan will be operated by the airline’s state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliner and will be configured with 22 seats in Business Class and 232 seats in Economy Class.
The airline has introduced several new destinations over the past 12 months to its growing route network with some African destinations including flights to Abuja, Accra, Luanda and Kigali flying 4x weekly. The airline also recently announced that it will resume services to Khartoum, Sudan, with four weekly flights starting May 11, 2021.
Even as the global COVID-19 pandemic continues to create unprecedented challenges for the aviation industry, Qatar Airways has nevertheless continued to work diligently taking people home safely and reliably with the Doha based carrier priding itself as the airline that never stopped flying throughout the ongoing crisis.
Qatar Airways growing route network currently stands at over 130 destinations with plans to increase to more than 1,200 weekly flight to over 140 destinations by end of July 2021.
The flight for the Abidjan route will be operated on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and scheduled:
Doha (DOH) to Abidjan (ABJ) QR1423 – departs 02:20 arrives 09:10
