Gallivant Africa

From the 20th of June, EgyptAir will resume it’s network to Abidjan via Accra with 2 flights weekly. Following the airlines restructuring phase in 2014 to boost profitability, EgyptAir had to cut unprofitably routes. EgyptAir had been highly unprofitable since the political crisis in Egypt began in early 2011.

In a statement on Wednesday, Chairman and CEO of EgyptAir Holding Ahmed Adel said that the re-operation of flights to Abidjan coincides with the launch of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in June. He further underlined that EgyptAir will be the official carrier of AFCON, set for Egypt from June 21 to July 19.
