Air France has started a daily service between Accra and its hub at Paris-Charles de Gaulle, France, with stops in Lomé and Ouagadougou.
The airline, which commenced the new schedule on March 25, 2018 said the strategic decision to operate daily flight between Paris and Accra, with stops in the two neighbouring West Africa countries, is designed to offer the travelling public more travelling options on the route.
The airline, a subsidiary of the Air France–KLM Group and a founding member of the SkyTeam global airline alliance, will operate the Accra-Ouagadougou-Paris flights on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
It will also operate the Paris-Ouagadougou-Accra-Paris flights on Mondays and Wednesdays.
The Lomé-Accra-Paris and Paris-Accra-Lomé flights will be operated on Thursdays and Saturdays.
The increase in frequency comes within a year of the airline’s operations in the country. The airline, within a year of operations, now commands 3.2 percent of the outbound European traffic.
Air France’s hub at Paris-Charles de Gaulle, in the heart of Europe, is a genuine gateway to the rest of the world from Africa. About 6,500 Air France staff work at the facility, serving about 100,000 passengers every day and 25,000 weekly connecting passengers.
