Air France looking at Goa, Kolkata as new destinations

With high load factors of up to 92 per cent on its India routes, Air France says it plans to increase services to southern Indian cities. The airline is also considering Goa and Kolkata as new destinations.

The heaviest traffic is between Delhi and Paris, Air France executive vice president Bruno Matheu said. He said the airline planned to start daily flights to Bangalore and Chennai 'soon'.

However, he did not give any specific time frame for this.

Asked about the new destinations, Matheu said the "most demanded route" was Goa, followed by Kolkata. However, launching services to these cities depended on the bilateral air traffic agreement between France and India.
