Air France and MSC Cruises partner for Cuba

Airline and cruise giant strengthen Caribbean partnership
MSC Cruises and Air France have signed a new Fly&Cruise agreement, with two weekly flights dedicated exclusively to MSC passengers flying between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Havana, Cuba.
The deal will give 10,450 cruisers direct access to Cuba between October 30 and March 25, 2017, on 36 frequencies chartered by Air France A340s with 275 seats including 30 in Business and 21 in Premium Economy.
By dedicating 19 flights from Paris and 17 on departure from French regions (Bordeaux, Clermont-Ferrand, Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Metz-Nancy, Montpellier, Mulhouse, Nantes, Nice, Strasbourg, Toulouse) as a continuation of Paris, the two companies say they are meeting strong market demand to the Caribbean and are strengthening a partnership in existence since 2012.
MSC and Air France have cooperated before, for example on flights between France and the Dominican Republic.
The Fly&Cruise packages offer a “seamless travel experience: they just need to check in their bags at their local airport and they will be delivered directly to their cabin on board the ship”.
The packages also include airport transfers, meaning that passengers are taken directly from the airport to the ship.
