Air Côte d’Ivoire had already chosen the A320 family because of its comfortable cabin, low operating costs and fuel consumption performance. It already operates six Airbus aircraft (four A319s and two A320) in the framework of a leasing contract.

Air Côte d’Ivoire operates 25 different domestic routes in West Africa and Central Africa.
 
The cabin of the aircraft delivered yesterday is configured in two classes (16 business class and 132 economy class seats) and business class has the new 'Celeste[' seat provided by Stelia Aerospace.

Air Côte d’Ivoire currently flies to 20 international destinations located in West and Central Africa and to five domestic destinations.
