Air France launches route from Lyon to Gothenburg
- Air France, through its subsidiary Régional, launched operations between Lyon (LYS) in east-central France and Sweden’s second city, Gothenburg (GOT), on 17 September. The route, which is largely driven by the business links between Gothenburg-based Volvo and its Lyon-based subsidiary Renault Trucks, had been operated by City Airline/Skyways since 2004 until the airline’s demise in May when anna.aero indeed speculated that Régional would take over the route. The French airline now operates six times weekly with 50-seat ERJ145 aircraft. This is Air France’s second route to Gothenburg after its services from Paris CDG.
