Air France will increase its weekly capacity to 5 destinations in Latin America starting in September. It will add 40% to the number of weekly operations and seats available from Paris with flights to Buenos Aires, Lima, Panama City, Santiago de Chile and São Paulo.

Steven van Wijk, Commercial Director of the Air France-KLM Group in South America pointed out the importance of these new operations for the airline, especially the Brazilian market. “These new features reinforce our commitment to the continuous resumption of operations in Brazil, one of Air France’s main markets, following the trends of this new moment and to serve more passengers traveling for pleasure or business. Air France has seen solid numbers in Brazil in terms of reservations and aircraft occupancy, which naturally leads us to expand the offer of seats.”

Air France will primarily employ its Boeing 787-9, Airbus A350-900, and Boeing 777 fleets to serve these markets.
