Air France and AKFED Enters into Partnership in the New Air Cote Ivoire

The partnership between Air France and AKFED in the new Air Cote Ivoire with a 20% and 15% shareholding in the company, respectively, may open new doors for future cooperation even in East Africa, where AKFED is the principal shareholder of Air Uganda. AKFED's West African aviation ventures have been struggling, with two airlines operating in Mali and Burkina Faso, suggesting that the new format of partnership, here with the government of Ivory Coast and Air France, may become a model in the future for AKFED's entire aviation involvement, which includes Meridiana Fly in Europe, a regional carrier based in Italy with its main base in Olbia/Sardinia, grown in size and scope after a quasi merger with former EuroFly.
