The line will be open from April 20, 2020, directly and as a continuation of service to Bamako, which at the same time will undergo capacity building.
As from 20 April 2020, Air France passengers will be able to reach Monrovia (Liberia), with five flights per week operated by Airbus A330-300 with a capacity of 224 seats (36 in Business, 21 in Premium Economy and 167 in Economy class). The line will be operated in triangular operation with the Bamako line. Air France will link Monrovia in continuation of service to Bamako (Mali), on Mondays, Wednesdays and Sundays, and directly on Tuesdays and Fridays before joining Bamako. Thanks to this new route to Monrovia, the Bamako line will benefit from five additional flights to Mali (12 flights in total), representing a 63% increase in capacity compared to last year.
Next summer, Air France will serve 35 destinations in Africa and 280 weekly flights. In total, the Air France-KLM group will operate more than 500 weekly flights to 49 destinations in Africa. Air France offers an adapted service on these African lines, including a bigger baggage allowance (3 baggage of 32 kilos in Premiere and 2 of the same weigh in business; 2 baggage of 23 kilos in premium economy and economy class).
