Air Cote d'Ivoire has converted two options from the order it placed in December 2013 for Q400 NextGen airliners into firm orders.
The airline took delivery of its first two aircraft in 2014, in a dual-class configuration.
"The demonstrated performance of the Q400 NextGen aircraft has been exceptional as we continue to develop our domestic short- and medium- haul markets and increase our route network," remarked Rene Decurey, chief executive officer, Air Cote d'Ivoire. "It's the most productive, flexible and economical aircraft for our growth strategy and its dual-class cabin fits well with an overall service offering that has been wonderfully received by our passengers. We are placing this additional order as the Q400 aircraft is a significant contributor to our bottom line."
