Posted 10 April 2015 · Add Comment

Since 7 April 2015, Air France's new travel cabins have been serving Douala (Cameroon) and Malabo (Equatorial Guinea), the first African destinations to benefit from these cabins.

Customers can fly off to Douala and Malabo as a continuation of the service, on departure from Paris-Charles de Gaulle, on board a Boeing 777-200 equipped with the new cabins, with 40 Business seats, 24 Premium Economy seats and 216 Economy seats.

The gradual entry into service of the BEST-equipped Boeing 777 enables Air France to serve Douala and Malabo with the new cabins up to seven times a week throughout the 2015 summer season.

DOUALA AND MALABO, TENTH DESTINATION SERVED BY AIR FRANCE'S BEST CABINS
Air France continues to roll out its new travel cabins on board its Boeing 777, at the heart of its long-haul fleet. The new BEST cabins are already available on flights to New York, Tokyo, Singapore, Jakarta, Shanghai, Sao Paulo, Dubai, Guangzhou and now Douala and Malabo. As from 14 May 2015, Yaoundé will be the next destination in Africa to benefit from the comfort of these new cabins.

At the end of the 2015 summer season, Air France's new BEST cabins will equip 21 aircraft serving some 18 long-haul destinations.
