Air France connects Paris and Accra with direct flights

Published on : Saturday, March 4, 2017

Air FranceAs part of its efforts to increase services between Europe and Africa, Air France has launched direct flights between Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris and Kotoka International Airport in Accra.

 

To mark the start of the new service on Feb 28, Jean-Marc Janaillac, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Air France- KLM, addressed a media conference in Accra Wednesday. He said that the introduction of the direct flights on the Paris-Accra route was the latest step taken in the airline’s long-term initiative to increase services in Africa.

 

Air France-KLM, he added, already had an extensive presence in Africa; with flights to 51 destinations on the continent and more frequencies through its partnership with Kenya Airways.

 

The launch of the Accra service, he said, would strengthen the partnership between France and Ghana, reinforce business relations and improve tourism, especially as Ghana celebrates its 60th independence anniversary and also the 60th anniversary of bilateral relations between the two countries this year.

 

Air France will operate three flights a week between Paris and Accra, using an Airbus A330 aircraft with a capacity of 208 seats until March 2017 and thereafter a Boeing 777-200 aircraft, with 312 seats, both in three-class configurations.
