Air Afrique was a Pan-African airline, that was mainly owned by many West African countries for most of its history. It was established as the official transnational carrier for francophone West and Central Africa, and had its headquarters in Abidjan, Ivory Coast and main hub at Aéroport International Houphouët-Boigny. The formation of the company took place in 1961 as a joint venture between Air France, UAT and 11 countries. UAT (becoming UTA in 1963) being the technical support and maintenance of the fleet. Air Afrique began a steady decline in the early 1980s, yet many years later the company was still considered the most reputable carrier in West Africa, and even one of the top five airlines of Africa. Mismanagement, corruption, and the downturn in the aviation industry after the 11 September 2001 attacks led the airline to a crisis that ended with its liquidation in early 2002.
