Air France Launch flights to Abuja Nigeria

As from 4 June 2012, Air France will be operating a daily flight to Abuja in Nigeria on departure from Paris-Charles de Gaulle. Flights will be operated by Airbus A330-200. With a total capacity of 208 seats, it has 40 seats in the Business class cabin, 21 in the Premium Voyageur cabin and 147 in the Voyageur (Economy) cabin. All Air France's Airbus A330-200s are equipped with the new "full sleep" Business class seat, which is longer, wider and more spacious. It is favoured by over 90% of Air France customers who appreciate the enhanced quality of sleep it provides during the flight. Five kilos lighter, it contributes to the reduction of CO² emissions and is therefore more environmentally friendly.

Flight AF 514 will leave Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 10:40 am and will arrive in Abuja at 3:35 pm before continuing on to Port Harcourt.

Flight AF 513 from Port Harcourt will leave Abuja at 11:15 pm and will arrive the following day at Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 6:10 am, offering excellent connecting opportunities to the 254 Air France and KLM destinations.

This new non-stop route is in addition to the daily flights to Lagos and flights to PortHarcourt and strengthens Air France's services to Nigeria, while at the same time illustrating Air France and KLM's continuous growth strategy in Africa.

With its network of 69 destinations1 in Africa and Middle-East in summer 2012, Air France, KLM and its partners are offering even more destinations and non-stop flights between these regions and the hubs at Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Amsterdam Schiphol.
