Despite what it says on the banner, Air France’s new three times weekly service from Paris CDG to Accra started on 28 February and not 1 March. The route becomes the SkyTeam carrier’s 31st destination in Africa.
- Air France has launched direct flights from its Paris CDG (CDG) hub to Accra (ACC) in Ghana, increasing the airline’s presence in the Europe-Africa market. The carrier is starting the route three times weekly initially operated by its 208-seat A330-200s, but later this month it will switch the aircraft type to its larger 312-seat 777-200s.
