Air France to commence flights to Accra in 2017

Air France will from 28 February 2017 offer three weekly flights to Accra from Paris-Charles de Gaulle.

Air France-KLM currently operates flights to 46 destinations in Africa.

In addition to its joint venture partnership with Kenya Airways, the Group offers even more frequencies between Europe and Africa and has expanded its network with another 18 destinations.

Air France is expanding on one of the most important markets on the African continent for traffic to and from Europe and North America.

According to the Chairman and CEO of Air France, Frédéric Gagey, “These three weekly flights will strengthen Air France’s presence in Africa as well as the Air France-KLM Group’s presence, as KLM already flies daily from Amsterdam to Accra. With this new service, we will provide Air France customers with even more connecting opportunities at Paris-Charles de Gaulle, both to and from Europe and North America. We also want to support Ghana’s buoyant economy, led by the development of the oil industry. Finally, our long-haul network is expanding in a region where we are already a leader”

The Group also benefits from a code-share agreement with South African airlines Comair and kulula.com, and offers flights to 5 other destinations in South Africa via Johannesburg or Cape Town.

Since 2012, Air France has been the strategic partner of Air Côte d’Ivoire. In May 2012, Air France supported the creation of this airline, alongside the Ivorian state, thanks to a 20%investment in its initial capital.
