Comair which operates Kulula and British Airways locally announced the suspension of all its flights.

However, there is some good news as Air Côte d’Ivoire will be launching the quickest route between Joburg and Abidjan, in Côte d’Ivoire, this June.

The Joburg-Abidjan via Kinshasa route will launch on June 29 and will be the fastest route between South Africa and Côte d’Ivoire offered by any airline in Africa.

The airline will be introducing four flights per week between Joburg and Abidjan.

Bookings opened on June 1.

The new route also offers ease of access to 16 West and Central African countries: Congo, Gabon, Nigeria, Ghana, Mali, Guinea, Burkina Faso, Niger, Liberia, Benin, Senegal, Cameroon, Togo, DRC, Côte d’Ivoire and Guinea-Bissau.

Air Côte d’Ivoire chief executive Laurent Loukou believes the new route between Abidjan and Joburg will be key to opening up opportunities for investment and improving bilateral trade between the two countries.
