Air France and Air Austral have signed a codeshare agreement allowing customers to travel between Europe and the Indian Ocean via Paris-Charles de Gaulle and St. Denis de la Reunion.
This partnership is in addition to the previous Interline agreement signed in April 2014 between Air France and Air Austral, and increases the choice of destinations between the Indian Ocean and Europe.
Air France will offer customers two new destinations in the Indian Ocean via Saint Denis de la Reunion - Dzaoudzi in Mayotte, and Moroni in the Comoros.
Air Austral will also offer customers 40 European destinations via Paris-Charles de Gaulle on codeshare flights operated by Air France.
Other destinations in Europe and the Indian Ocean will be added in the coming months.
On these codeshare routes, customers will benefit from a single fare and a single ticket for their journey.
They can also check in with their baggage from their departure airport to their final destination.
Zoran Jelkic, executive vice president Caribbean, Indian Ocean, and Latin America at Air France-KLM said: “Air France welcomes this partnership, which will offer customers new travel opportunities in the Indian Ocean.
“This agreement confirms our commitment to expand our offering and strengthen our partnerships in the region.
