To meet the strong market demand, Air France will fly to Cancun throughout 2017 from Paris-Charles de Gaulle, increasing the number of services to four weekly flights during the 2016-17 winter season, operated by Boeing 777-300 (296 seats) and three weekly flights during the 2017 summer season, operated by Boeing 777-200 (312 seats).
“By launching services by A380 on the Paris-Mexico City route in January 2016, Air France was the first airline to fly to Central and South America with the super jumbo. With today’s announcement of Paris-Cancun services throughout the year, which so far have been operated only in winter, Air France-KLM is confirming its development strategy on the Mexican market. These direct flights to Cancun all year round offer our French and European passengers direct access to the Riviera Maya, a very popular region with tourists”, said Patrick Alexandre, EVP Commercial, Sales and Alliances at Air France-KLM.
During the 2016-17 winter season, the Air France-KLM group will operate up to 18 weekly flights to Mexico:
- Four weekly flights between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Cancun, operated by Air France;
- Seven weekly flights between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Mexico City, operated by Air France ;
- Seven weekly flights between Amsterdam and Mexico City.
Air France also offers services between Paris and Mexico City on a codeshare basis with Aeromexico, providing a wide range of connecting opportunities on the Mexican airline’s domestic network.
