Air France Schedule Changes To The Middle East

Wed Jul 26, 2006 4:02 am

According to AF's online schedule from the start of the winter schedule, the airline will make some changes on their flights to the Middle East.



Jeddah (JED):

At the moment AF serves JED with 3x weekly A332 flights via the Egyptian capital, Cairo, (AF524/521), but from 30/10/06 AF will replace this service with 3x weekly non-stop A319 flights using Air France Dedicate aircraft.

New schedule:

CDG-JED AF520 1-3--6- 10:50/18:40 5hr50min 0 A319

Riyadh (RUH):

Flights to Riyadh (also served with Air France Dedicate A319 aircraft) will go down from daily to 6x weekly flights this winter.

New schedule:

surprised to see a reduction in frequencies,. BEY use to be their most profitable route in the middle east until 14 days ago...
Next destinations, Suarabaya, beirut, paris, Accra

I guess the frequency reductions are seasonal changes. And regarding BEY, if indeed it is AF's most profitable Middle Eastern destination, then once things go back to normal it will hopefully retain it's pole position.

Quoting Horus (Thread starter):

I was not surprised to see this change , few months ago , friends of mine took this CDG-CAI-JED flight and told me that the vast majority of passengers de-boarded in CAI .
AF didn't have rights between CAI and JED . But i am surprised to see Riyadh getting more weekly flights ( double ) than Jeddah .
