Thursday 20, January 2011
Present in Africa for close to 75 years, Air France and KLM continue to improve their offer in this region of the world. Thanks to its African partners, the Group can offer its customers an increasingly expanded network with new destinations, additional frequencies and even more direct flights to and from the Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Amsterdam-Schiphol hubs.

The Air France KLM Group is also increasing its frequencies to Pointe Noire (Congo), Libreville** (Gabon), Malabo (Equatorial Guinea), Dar Es Salaam and Kilimandjaro (Tanzania).

**subject to obtaining traffic rights from the Gabonese authorities
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
