Paris to Capetown non-stop

Capetown is to become Air France’s 12th new destination launched in 2011.  From 3 November the French national airline will operate three weekly frequencies to Africa’s most southerly city.  It is the country's legislative capital and the seat of the South African Parliament.  Flights will be serviced by a Boeing 777-200 with 35 seats in the Business Premier, 24 in Premium Voyageur and 250 in the Voyageur cabin.

Air France introduced the Airbus A380 on the daily Johannesburg route in February 2010.

This new route launch is part of Air France/KLM Group’s expansion policy on the African continent, with four new destinations in 2011: Bata (Equatorial Guinea), Cape Town (South Africa), Freetown (Sierra Leone) and Monrovia (Liberia).  These new destinations bring the number of cities in Africa served in winter 2011 to 38. www.airfrance.com
