Voice of Travelers to Abidjan

Airfare ticket to Abidjan

I travelled to Abidjan for a business trip. I booked a ticket last minute with Brussels Airlines. The ticket to Abidjan was not expensive even if I purchased it just a week before my flight. The ticket agent offered me the service of fast transfer from Abidjan airport to the city by taxi, so I took it. Brussels Airlines gave a good service and when I decided to change the ticket date for returning back from Abidjan, my ticket agent did not take any extras. I recommend Brussels Airlines for a reasonable ticket price even if booked late if you travel to Abidjan.

Visiting Abidjan for a sightseeing

I visited Abidjan last autumn with bunch of friends who invited me to on a short city break. Abidjan was one city I had always wanted to visit, just never found a cheap airfare ticket for. This time, we booked the group airfare ticket to Abidjan and paid for it together. The price of a group ticket to Abidjan was thus cheaper than if each one of us would buy an individual ticket. We flew to Abidjan with South African Airways. Since the ticket was not expensive, we decided to upgrade for the first class at the airport. The service aboard South African was very good both on the way to Abidjan and back. Abidjan is an amazing place and I would love to visit it again if we put a group together to go to Abidjan on a group ticket again.
