Air France deploys its Airbus A380 to Abidjan (Ivory Coast).

First A380 connection for French-speaking Africa TEST FLIGHT

- January 28, 2014 Air France tested its A380 on the Paris - Abidjan route on January 28, during an international congress. Following this first “test” flight, Félix Houphouët-Boigny airport in Abidjan carried out the necessary work to be able to accommodate the A380.

Since October 26, 2014, the service has become regular with 3 flights per week:

- Outbound flight AF 702: departure from Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 1:50 p.m., arrival in Abidjan at 7:25 p.m.

- Return flight AF 703: departure from Abidjan at 10:10 p.m., arrival at Paris-CDG at 6:35 a.m. the next day.

A collection of personalized postage stamps and aerophilatelic covers in limited editions, bearing the special stamps of the inaugural outward and return, was carried out especially for the “TEST FLIGHT” and the “first A380 Paris - Abidjan flight” of Air France.
