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.
