Posted 7 June 2018 · Add Comment

The new business aviation terminal at the Ivory Coast’s Félix Houphouet-Boigny International Airport in Abidjan is scheduled to open in May.

Gilles Darriau, MD of Abidjan International Airport (AERIA) said: “By offering an additional range of services at an airport serving Africa, the Middle East, Europe and the USA, and already certified by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), the overall attractiveness of the country will be enhanced.”
According to Darriau, the estimated market today is “at least 1,000 annual movements with good potential for further growth”.
The FBO will be managed by Jetex and will feature four lounges, three of which are open-plan with one specifically for private meetings.
According to Adel Mardini, CEO and president of Jetex, Abidjan is a very attractive airport at which to operate as it possesses excellent expansion forecasts.
Abidjan is the second African airport – after Morocco – at which Jetex will operate FBO and ground-handling services. The operator is exploring other locations in Africa, such as Accra and Nairobi, to cover the continent’s strategic regions.
“There is a huge potential for business aviation in Africa. Many of our clients travel to these areas,” concluded Mardini.
