Air France recently
celebrated the 50th anniversary of its Paris – Mumbai route. In the 1960s, the
French flag carrier added Mumbai to its Far East network and launched flights
from Mumbai on September 7, 1967.
On this occasion of completing half
century, Max Smits, general manager, Air France-KLM, Indian Sub-Continent, said,
"We are very proud to celebrate 50 years of service between Mumbai and
Paris. Air France has been present in Mumbai since 1967 and has been investing
continuously with the aim to provide a great product and excellent connection
opportunities to the Indian passengers from its hub at Paris, Charles de
Gaulle. We take this opportunity to thank our loyal customers and partners in
reaching this great milestone.”
The airline now operates a
daily service between Paris - Charles de Gaulle and Mumbai by Boeing 777-200.
