Linen backed Air Afrique Ivory Coast vintage poster. Great mid century modern style design in this image. The travel poster for the Air Afrique airline company used the visual elements of pose of figures, objects, color, composition of image and text to create a general theme for the posters. Air Afrique was founded on March 28, 1961, headquartered in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire, and was established as the official transnational carrier for francophone West Africa. The airline closed in 2001. (Its main shareholders at the time were Société pour le Développement du Transport Aérien en Afrique (SODETRAF) and the following West African countries: Benin, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Congo-Brazzaville, Gabon, Ivory Coast, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Republic of Upper Volta (today called Burkina Faso) and Senegal.)
