Air France - The upcoming launch of two new African destinations in April


On 19 and 20 April, Air France will fly twice weekly to Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone and Monrovia, the capital of Liberia.


These two new destinations will bring the total number of Air France or KLM destinations in Africa to 38, representing a 4% increase in capacity to this continent. Following KLM’s launch of Kigali in October 2010, these two new Air France routes form part of AIR France KLM’s growth strategy in Africa. 


This ambition to offer customers even more choice and destinations goes hand in hand with the desire to accompany the growth in economic relations between Sierra Leone, Liberia and the rest of the world. 


These new flights to Freetown and Monrovia will be operated as a continuation of flights to Conakry by Airbus A330-200 with 208 seats, with Air France’s three long-haul cabin classes, Business, Premium Voyageur and Voyageur.


Freetown will be served on Tuesdays and Sundays, and Monrovia will be served on Wednesdays and Fridays.
