A Air France resumed this Friday, 16, the direct flights connecting Paris to Fortaleza. The airline, however, stressed that, given the new wave of cases of contagion from Covid-19 in several European countries and the consequent travel and circulation restrictions imposed, the maintenance of the route during the month of November onwards depends on evaluation.
“While we are happy and excited about the resumption of flights to the capital of Ceará, where we have been operating for just over a year, we are experiencing a very sensitive moment for tourism not only in Brazil, but worldwide, in a crisis that strongly affected the airline industry. For this reason, we keep a close eye on the performance of all our routes, month by month, including the one in Fortaleza that we have just reopened, to make the necessary adjustments in order to align the demand and offer of our flights ”, said Jean-Marc Pouchol, director general manager of the Air France-KLM group in South America.
Every Friday the Boeing 777-200 leaves Paris at 12 o’clock and arrives at 16 o’clock in Fortaleza. And on Saturdays, a flight departs at 6:55 pm from Fortaleza and is expected to arrive at 7:45 am the next day in Paris. The aircraft has 312 seats, with 28 seats in Business Class, 24 in Premium Economy and 260 in Economy Class.
Both Air France and KLM have exceptional commercial measures for all trips until March 31, 2021. Among these, there is the possibility to change the ticket without penalty and for any reason, on the date and to the destination of your choice. In the case of voluntary change, both the date and destination may result in a difference in tariff.
Customers who choose not to make a new reservation immediately, can request a refundable voucher. In addition, they will receive up to 15% more of the voucher value if used for a future trip. Flying Blue loyalty program participants have doubled their miles and experience points (XP).
In addition to the flight from Fortaleza, this October, Air France is operating flights to 170 destinations, including more than 70 cities in Europe, several international routes around the world and its entire air network in France.
