Air Ivoire == History == The airline was established on 14 December 1960 and started operations in August 1964. Sodetraf, UTA and Air Afrique held an interest in the airline until January 1976, when the government of Côte d'Ivoire acquired all of the shares. Initially known as Air Ivoire, the airline suspended operations in September 1999 due to financial difficulties. After being acquired by AAA, owned 51% by Air France and AIG, the company changed its name to Nouvelle Air Ivoire and resumed operations in 2001. The airline had since reverted to its original title.
