Air France-KLM’s long-haul network: a major Group asset

Air France-KLM’s powerful network, serving 254 destinations in 124 countries from Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Amsterdam-Schiphol, is a major strategic, competitive asset, according to Air France.
The company reinforced its position in 2011 in key growth markets, opening a number of long-haul routes to destinations that include Kigali, Freetown, Monrovia , Phnom Penh and Xiamen. Air France-KLM will continue its development in China in 2012 opening service to Wuhan, located at the crossroads of central China.

Air France-KLM’s powerful joint venture operated with Delta and Alitalia also paved the way for the opening of two new destinations: Orlando and Cancun.

In addition to these route openings, the Group strengthened its presence in strategic locations where demand is strong, providing service from both its Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Amsterdam-Schiphol hubs to Miami, Punta Cana, Buenos Aires , Rio de Janeiro, Havana, Lima and Cape Town.

With over 30,000 long-haul/medium-haul connections, Air France-KLM also offers the best connections in Europe from its hubs at Paris-CDG and Amsterdam Schiphol.
