Lima is the latest South American destination to be linked to the Air France network. The carrier has inaugurated a five times per week service from Paris Charles de Gaulle, flown by a Boeing 777-200ER. The aircraft is configured with three cabin classes with 35 seats in the new Business Class, featuring a lie-flat seat bed measuring over 2m in length, 24 pod style seats in Premium Voyageur and 250 in Voyageur (economy) class. Sister company KLM operates a daily service out of Amsterdam.
Lima is the capital of Peru, has a population approaching and sits at sea leval. The historial site of Machu Picchu is at 8,000ft, similar to the cabin height most airliners operate at. Another popular tourist attraction, Lake Titicaca, is much higher at 12,500ft, at which the lack of air pressure does become noticeable. Lima is the fifth largest city in Latin America, behind Mexico City, São Paulo, Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro. It is home to one of the largest financial hubs in Latin America. www.airfrance.com
