CANCUN – To celebrate its 65th anniversary in Mexico and in response to the strong Mexican demand, Air France-KLM announced that starting this year, the Cancun-Paris route will operate four weekly frequencies throughout the year. Previously the flights were only available from October to April.
Based on the electronic records of the National Institute of Migration (INM), at the points of aerial admission to Mexico, Cancun International Airport reached 93,726, from January to November 2016 (latest available), a figure that would increase with this new measure.
From Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport, frequencies for the winter season were operated through a Boeing 777-300, with 468 seats; while weekly frequencies during the summer season 2017 will be aboard a Boeing 777-200, with seating capacity of 312, said Vincent Etchebehere, CEO of Air France and KLM in Mexico.

With the direct flight throughout 2017 is projected a 40% increase, taking into account a 95% occupancy, which is what AirFrance has registered on their flights to Cancun and Mexico City.
These direct flights to Cancun offer French and European passengers direct access to the Riviera Maya, one of the most popular regions in Mexico.
In the Boeing 777-300, seats are divided into 14 for business class, 32 in economy premiun and 422 in economy. While the Boeing 777-200 aircraft are 26 seats for business class, 24 economy premiun and 260 for economy.
