Air France resumes flights to Freetown
According to Le Figaro, one of the oldest national newspapers in France, Air France announced this week it will return to Freetown and flights will be on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Flights will be operated by Airbus A330-200, with a capacity of 208 seats: 40 in Business, 21 in Premium Economy and 147 in Economy.
Air France’s announcement to resume service to the capital of Sierra Leone, Freetown, comes eight months after it suspended flights last August because of the Ebola outbreak and at the request of the French government.
That decision came a week after the airline's staff signed a petition calling on their employer to avoid Ebola-affected countries for their own safety.
Unions representing employees called on the airline to halt its flights to and from the West African countries that were grappling with the Ebola outbreak.
