Air France has officially launched its Accra –Paris /Paris-Accra direct flights as part of its efforts to increase services between Europe and Africa.

Speaking at a press conference to commemorate the start of its flights, Mr Jean-Marc Janaillac, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Air France KLM, said that the new route adds to the
Air France-KLM group’s extensive presence in Africa, giving travellers options and comfort in planning their trips.

Starting February 28, Air France will now operate 3 flights a week between Paris Charles De Gaulle and Kotoka international airport, Accra, using an Airbus A330 with a capacity of 208 seats until March 2017 and a Boeing 777-200 aircraft, with 312 seats after March; both in three-class configurations.
The A330 has 40 Business class, 21 Premium Economy and 147 Economy class seats, while the Boeing 777-200 will have 28 in Business class, 24 in Premium Economy and 260 in Economy.

Dick van Nieuwenhuyzen, Air France-KLM Country Manager for Ghana, said the Air France-KLM group now offered 10 flights between Ghana and Europe; seven to Amsterdam and three to Paris, with extra seats, which was good for the market in Ghana.
He said the increase in capacity was good for exporters on the route.
The new flights would be handled by the existing KLM staff in Ghana, he said, which meant that passengers would continue to enjoy the services they received on KLM.

From now till 28th March, AF 780 will leave Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 1330 hours and arrive in Accra at 1905hours the same day. AF731 then leaves Accra at 2225 hours arriving at Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 0600 the following day.
From 28 March 2017, AF780 will leave Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 1530, arriving in Accra at 1950 hours the same day. Flight AF731 will leave Accra at 2340, and arrive at Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 0800 the following day
