Air France to fly Paris-Cape Town direct
Saturday 09 April 2011
Air France will begin flying direct from Paris to Cape Town three times a week starting in November, an official said Thursday.
The flights from Roissy-Charles de Gaulle will begin on November 3, with a Boeing 777-200 carrying up to 309 passengers on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
Air France currently serves only Johannesburg with daily flights from Paris on the Airbus A380 superjumbo.
"We still see the demand for South Africa growing very rapidly," Ralf Karsenbarg, Air France-KLM's Johannesburg commercial director, told AFP.
"The research shows a very positive outlook," he said. "The French community is very strong in the Western Cape."
