TAP Portugal will commence five weekly flights to Abidjan, in Ivory Coast, starting July 17th this year. Abidjan is the seventh new destination to be added to TAP’s global network in 2017, including Toronto, Stuttgart, Gran Canaria, Alicante, Bucharest and Budapest.
Nonstop service between Lisbon and Abidjan will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, on A320 aircraft. The flights depart from Lisbon at 5:25pm and return from Abidjan at 11:00pm. In winter, the schedule will reduce to four weekly flights.
The Abidjan International Airport receives 2 million passengers annually, from more than 20 airlines, and offers connections to 35 destinations, throughout Africa and the Middle-East.
A tropical destination, Ivory Coast offers popular beach resorts in Assinie and Grand-Bassam, and incredible architecture such as St. Paul’s Cathedral in Abidjan and the Basilica of Our Lady of Peace, in Yamoussoukro, the country’s capital.
The addition of Abidjan to TAP’s global network increases the airline’s African route network to comprise 15 destinations in 10 countries.
