Air France to be “leader in Japan”

Airline to fly to Tokyo-Haneda from summer 2014

Air France intends to increase its service to Japan by introducing a new daily flight operated with its own aircraft and crew to the downtown airport of Tokyo-Haneda from summer 2014, a move it says will make it “leader in Japan”. The new destination will, it says, make connections easier to domestic airports within Japan. The French airline has been selling seats on a codeshare basis on flights operated by Japan Airlines between Paris-CDG and Tokyo-Haneda since 2010.
This announcement follows a visit by Alexandre de Juniac, chairman and CEO of Air France, to Tokyo on November 28 to celebrate 60 years of Air France’s presence in Japan.
This winter, Air France-KLM is offering up to 51 weekly flights departing from Paris-CDG and Amsterdam-Schiphol, including some on a codeshare basis with Japan Airlines. This will be expanded from 3 April 2013 with a new service to Fukuoka operated by KLM with three weekly frequencies.
