French flag carrier Air France has started flying between Yangon International Airport and Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris via Bangkok through a codeshare agreement with Bangkok Airways, the airline said.
Travellers from Myanmar will now be able to travel to more than 90 business and leisure destinations across Europe, Africa and Americas through Bangkok and Air France’s hub in Paris, Air France said in a statement.
Air France currently offers six flights per week to Paris Charles de Gaulle with a 468-seat Boeing 777-300 aircraft, where 14 seats are Business Class, 32 Premium Economy and 422 are Economy.
The airline said the connecting time between the two carriers has been “reduced to a minimum” at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport to make Europe’s hubs “more accessible”.
Air France said passengers with flight connections can obtain their boarding passes for their onward flights upon check-in at Yangon, and also check through the baggage to final destination.
