Air Ivoire: Systemwide Network, c.2007
Air Ivoire is one of the largest post-Air Afrique state flag carriers, with Abidjan the de-facto capital of Francophone West Africa, despite the civil war that divided the country in 2002, and the recent infighting over the past six months.
Seen here in 2007, Air Ivoire continued to serve three aeroports de metropole, with expansion plans to the Republic of Congo the following year. Although Brazzaville is still on the most-recent schedule, neither Pointe-Noire nor any European destinations seemed to be served at present. Otherwise, the airline was still fully operative prior to the intense battling in Abidjan this spring.
