Air France Starting Cargo Service To Bangladesh

Thu Sep 27, 2007 9:29 pm

Air France Cargo will begin Dhaka flights later this year or early next routed via Bahrain with 747-200F, which will make them only the second European carrier to serve the country after British Airways, KLM briefly operated there in the 90's with a 747 passenger service.

Interesting development here...I have a gut feeling that the flight will be extended to a Far East destination from DAC.

Is that really true about the CDG-ZAZ-BAH-HKG leg?? I worked for AFC untill last February, but i cannot remember ZAZ was served...Is ZAZ really a cargo hub or a tech/fuel stop??
