Brasilia could be the new destination for Air France

Guarulhos international airport, São Paulo

Air France executives are studying a new direct flight from Paris to Brasil. The French airline currently flies twice a week from Paris to Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo and wishes to increase their offering. The announcement of the new route could take a while as it depends a great deal on how the world economic crisis and the one affecting airlines in particular evolve. Latest news is that the flight might start in 2014 coinciding with the World Cup.

During 2011, France was the most visited destination by Brazilians flying to Europe. Air France transported 40% of the passengers flying to the country.

Brasilia is one of our most recomnended Brazilian destinations. You will find plenty of useful travel information at our blog post destination: Brasilia.
