Air France has confirmed that flights to Maputo, Mozambique will commence from 2 December 2021. Originally planned for the end of October 2021, changes in the economic and sanitary context have led to this decision.
The flight to Maputo will be a continuation of the Johannesburg flight.
Wilson Tauro, country manager Southern Africa Air France-KLM, affirms that Air France remains strongly committed to Africa as a strategic asset in their global network.
"Air France is very pleased and proud to announce that we will add Maputo to our network this coming December. Mozambique has emerged as an important business destination due to its natural energy reserves, however, tourism is also a key asset of the country.
"Due to our extensive network, we will connect Maputo to all major cities in Europe and beyond, including destinations in Portugal, Brazil and Cuba that are historically popular destinations from Mozambique. With the easing of travel restrictions for vaccinated travellers, a crucial and extremely positive step has been made in reviving both leisure and corporate markets. We are very confident of the success that adding Maputo to our network will bring."
The launch of the Maputo route is another milestone for Air France as it extends its African footprint to 43 cities on the continent.
