Wednesday 4, August 2010
Air France continues the deployment of the Premium Voyageur cabin class on its long-haul network. Since the end of July, Air France has been operating flights to six new destinations - Bamako, Bogota, Guangzhou, Lome, Rio de Janeiro and Seattle - with aircraft equipped with this new intermediate cabin. This new cabin class will soon be available on flights to Abu Dhabi, Bangalore, Caracas and Cotonou.
On Air France's international long-haul network, Premium Voyageur is available to 39 destinations, and 20 new destinations will be added by the end of 2010.
All Boeing 777-200s (24 seats) and Boeing 777-300s (28 seats) are currently equipped with this cabin.
All Airbus A330s and A340s will be equipped by end-November (21 seats) and the Airbus A380s during summer 2011.
Premium Voyageur is designed for business customers that presently travel in economy class as well as leisure customers who are seeking additional comfort at a lower fare than business class.
With Premium Voyageur, Air France completes its product offer on its long-haul network and adapts its range of products to suit customers' new requirements. At an extremely competitive fare, customers have a private cabin with 40% extra space, a 48cm-wide fixed-shell seat that reclines to 123°.

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.
