► COTE D'IVOIRE: Air Cote d'Ivoire to roll out new destinations once a third A319, two Q400s arrive in November.

Air Cote d'IvoireAir Côte d’Ivoire (HF) says it will roll out the new part of its regional expansion programme, set to include new services from Abidjan to Lagos, Kinshasa, N'Djamena, Niamey, Monrovia, Freetown and Bangui, from mid November. The new routes were due to have launched in late August.

Officials attending the recent opening of the airline's offices in the Malian capital, Bamako, said the new routes would be underwritten by the arrivals of a third and first own Airbus A319, previously slated to have been (MSN 1018 | HB-IPR), and two Bombardier Q400s, in November.

The carrier's much anticipated roll out of domestic operations is also expected to occur about this time though this is still dependent on the quality of the country's infrastructure having been ameliorated.
