Air France expands services to West Africa

Air France expands services to West Africa

Present for the past 75 years on the African continent, Air France is expanding its offer of services in West Africa:

With the launch of two new destinations
* As from 19 April 2011, Air France will fly to Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone, twice weekly, on Tuesdays and Sundays, via Conakry.
* As from 20 April 2011, Air France will fly to Monrovia, the capital of Liberia, twice weekly, on Wednesdays and Fridays, via Conakry.
* And increased service to Conakry

As from 17 April 2011, Air France will fly to Conakry, the capital of Guinea, on a daily basis. Flights to Conakry will be operated on a non-stop basis four times weekly and via Nouakchott three times weekly.

These two new Air France routes and the daily service to Guinea illustrate the confidence AIR FRANCE KLM has in the development of the West African region. Our commitment to offer our customers even more choice and destinations goes hand in hand with our desire to accompany the growth in economic relations between the African continent and the rest of the world.

Flights to Conakry, Nouakchott, Freetown and Monrovia will be operated by Airbus A330-200 with 208 seats, in Air France’s three long-haul cabin classes (40 seats in Business, 21 in Premium Voyageur and 147 in Voyageur).
