Emirates has announced plans to resume flying to Accra and Abidjan from September 6.

Flights will operate direct from Dubai to Abidjan, before continuing onto Accra, and will be operated three times weekly by one of the carrier’s B777-300ER aircraft.

It will bring Emirates’ African network to 11 destinations – the airline recently announced the resumption of flights to Conakry (Guinea), Dakar (Senegal) and Lusaka (Zambia).
