AIR FRANCE: Passengers from Paris to Madrid 'packed in like sardines'
AIR France plans to re-launch flights to Mallorca and Ibiza at the end of next month.
The company announced on Wednesday it expects to be operating a weekly connection between Paris’s Charles de Gaulle airport and the two Balearic Islands starting from Saturday June 27.
The flight to Ibiza will be on an Embraer 90, with capacity for 100 passengers. The flight to Mallorca will be on an Airbus A319 for 137 passengers.
The airline also said it will be increasing the number of services to Madrid and Barcelona.
As the moment there are three weekly connections between the French and Spanish capitals and two flights a week between Paris and Catalonia’s main city. The plan is to increase the frequency of both routes throughout June up to two flights a day before the beginning of July.
Air France did however caution that its operations are “subject to the evolution” of the coronavirus pandemic situation, “and the measures taken by the authorities in each of the destinations.”
The airline is currently operating connections with 43 destinations, or somewhere between three and five per cent of its usual flight schedule.
