With all the three countries of Ivory Coast, Nigeria and Gabon situated along the Gulf of Guinea, Air France is all set to specialise its contribution of operations to the west of the continent.

TravelhouseUK has assured its clients of air travel to worldwide regions on board international standard airliners. According to reports by Routes News on Thursday, 21 February, Air France has made official plans for adding 3 weekly flights to Abidjan, operating daily flights to Libreville and allocating larger capacity aircraft for two destinations in Nigeria.

TravelhouseUK will have greater options to divert bookings via Paris to accommodate peak passenger demand to Abidjan during weekends. Flight schedules for Libreville will also become more convenient with the daily frequency of flights. As for Nigeria, the destinations of Port Harcourt and Abuja are under consistent competition among airlines owing to their regional significance.

The new season will be reorganized with additional flights as well as airliner replacements for major African destinations being served from Charles De Gaulle airport, the hub of operations for Air France. Flights to Abidjan are currently being operated on a daily basis, which will be increased to 10 flights per week by the 15th of April. The three days of the week which are chosen to have 2 flights each are centred on the weekend so as to attend to increased passenger demand during the routine holidays. The current Boeing 777-300 operating on the route will continue to serve as before, while the three additional weekly flights will be operated on an Airbus A340.

The urban centres of Abuja and Port Harcourt in Nigeria will be serviced by a Boeing 777-200 to step up passenger capacity per flight. The upgrade is scheduled to take place by 31st of March. It will allow the airline to accommodate proportional increase in seat bookings instead of allocating greater number of flights in the longer run. On the very same date, flights to Libreville will also be increased to be operated upon a daily basis.

Facilitating seat bookings for air travel from the UK, TravelhouseUK also relies on numerous European air carriers for inter-regional flights to other continents. The agency is also covering an extensive destination network covered by Air France, with flights to Sao Paulo, Ankara, Los Angeles, Douala and Libreville available for booking under bargain deals offered for the on-going season.

With all the three countries of Ivory Coast, Nigeria and Gabon situated along the Gulf of Guinea, Air France is all set to specialise its contribution of operations to the west of the continent. Abidjan is a stable urban base of growing commercial importance, while its natural beauty of the tropics as well as the beaches has evolved it into a prime tourist destination. Libreville, the capital city of Gabon, leads an entire district stretched along the end of the Komo River ending in the sea.

Dominating the entire European region by serving overseas flights bound for all continents, Air France is the flag carrier airline of France. The air carrier is headquartered at the Paris Charles De Gaulle Airport, and leads one of the largest airline alliances in the aviation industry, the Sky Team. Air France has been merged with Dutch flag carrier KLM to operate as well as be recognized as a single entity.
