The Air France A380 Takes Off To French-Speaking Africa For The First Time

November 6, 2013 Aviation No Comments Email Email

Air FranceFor the 2014 winter season, Air France wishes to serve Abidjan by A380 on a regular basis*. After Johannesburg, Abidjan will therefore become the second destination on the African continent to be served by the Air France superjumbo.
Abidjan has nearly seven million inhabitants. Air France has strengthened its presence there since summer 2013, with ten instead of seven weekly flights and an optimum choice of flight schedules for customers.

OPTIMUM COMFORT ON BOARD THE A380

The Air France A380, with a capacity of 516 seats, offers four cabin classes: La Première (9 seats), Business (80 seats) Premium Economy (38 seats) and Economy (389 seats). This Airbus is already a new benchmark in terms of air transport and the environment. Besides unparalleled comfort in a cabin with exceptional dimensions, it offers a low noise level on board and uses less fuel, therefore reducing CO2 emissions.

Flight schedule for 28 January by A380 (in local time)

AF 702: Leaves Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 13:45, arrives in Abidjan at 19:10 the same day

AF 703: Leaves Abidjan at 23:55, arrives at Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 7:10 the following day
