Air France adds New Flights to Nigeria

Europe's Air France is boosting its Africa connections from Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport with a new daily flight to Abuja in Nigeria from June 4 this year. Flights will be operated by an A330-200 with a total capacity of 208 seats - 40 in business class, 21 in premium economy and 147 in economy. All the airline's A330-200s are equipped with the new 'full sleep' business class seat.

The new non-stop route to Abuja is in addition to daily flights to Lagos and Port Harcourt, strengthening Air France's services to Nigeria, while illustrating the Air France/KLM group's growth strategy in Africa.

Air France/KLM and its partners will have a network of 69 destinations in Africa and the Middle East in the northern summer 2012 from Paris and Amsterdam Schiphol.
