Airports in Ivory Coast

Felix Houphouet Boigny International (ABJ)

Overview

Located 10 miles (16km) east of Abidjan, Abidjan International Airport is the primary airport for flights to the Ivory Coast. Also known as Félix Houphouët-Boigny International Airport or Port Bouet Airport, the modest facility processes roughly two million passengers each year.

The main terminal building has been renovated recently, and is a pleasant and efficient facility with basic amenities including a few shops and restaurants, however passengers should be prepared that there is no working ATM.

Location

The airport is located 10 miles (16km) southeast of the city centre.

Getting to the city

A bus service connects the airport with the city centre, and although very inexpensive, it is best used by intrepid travellers due to safety concerns. Orange taxis which charge set fares are the best option; taxi fares often double after dark.

Time

GMT.
