The Air France-KLM Group increases its capacity on flights to Brazil for the 2017 winter season on its respective airlines. Therefore, Air France will serve Brazil with 21 weekly frequencies on departure from Paris-Charles de Gaulle and KLM will offer 14 frequencies on departure from Amsterdam-Schiphol.
Moreover, the airlines are increasing their capacity by using larger capacity aircraft for these flights, and the Air France La Première cabin will be offered on flights to Sao Paulo 5 times weekly instead of 4 times the previous year.
This increased capacity to Brazil allows the Group to position itself among the main European airlines serving Brazil. It is also part of the Group’s strategy designed to increase and rationalize aircraft use while meeting increased demand for these destinations, for tourists and business customers alike. For the future, the group is studying different options for pursuing its growth in Brazil.
