Air France to launch Jakarta flights
Singapore, October 8, 2013

AIR France will begin offering flights from Paris to Jakarta via Singapore for summer 2014.


Patrick Roux, senior vice president Asia-Pacific for Air France, said the route is a result of rising opportunities for more feeder service. “We will also look at local partners who offer a lot of connections,” he added.


According to Singapore broadsheet The Straits Times, the new route will be tagged onto the airline’s existing daily service between Paris and Singapore.


Matthieu Tetaud, Air France’s commercial director for several Asian markets, was quoted as saying that the airline would consider a second daily flight if response to the service is good.


On other markets the airline was interested in, Roux said: “Apart from Indonesia and Malaysia, we are also looking at developing the Philippines and are growing frequencies for Vietnam.”

I appreciate Air France reintroducing its Jakarta air service. However, it would be more exciting if the route involves Ho Chi Minh City not via the overcrowded Singapore. Perhaps AF would like to know that Vietnam has grown to be a popular resort for Indonesians.
