Rainforest, savannah and mountains
Take an Brussels Airlines’ flight to Ivory Coast, the former French colony in West Africa and you will find a varied climate ranging from extreme aridity to pouring rain and a political system that is not entirely reliable.
Since 1983, the capital of the Ivory Coast has been Yamoussoukro, a city with about 110,000 inhabitants. Apart from its genuinely African name, this city, which is situated away from the coast, has little to offer. Government agencies, ministries, embassies and large companies have remained in the former capital, Abidjan – which is where our flights to Ivory Coast will take you.
Many people on our flights to Ivory Coast are on business. The former colony retains a high level of commercial links with Europe, particularly France. (We have flights to Ivory Coast from France as well as other European destinations)
The country is divided into three parts, as a result of the big differences in rainfall: in the south there is rainforest, in the centre there is savannah and in the north-west, on the border with Guinea, there are mountains and arid areas. Some people on our flights to Ivory Coast come just to study its varied ecology like the 150 officially protected forests, the most valuable of which is the Taï forest.
