Air France adds six new routes for S20

Air France has announced six new routes from S20, with significant expansion to Algeria – as a result of Aigle Azur’s end – and a new three-weekly, B787-operated Chennai service from Paris Charles de Gaulle. Chennai is one of Paris’ largest unserved markets, with ~88,000 indirect passengers in the past year. IIt will, of course, also cater for North America and wider European demand.

According to OAG Traffic Analyser, an estimated two million annual passengers travel between France and Algeria each year. Below are Air France’s new services, which will operate year-round except for Nice – Algiers:
