Air France is going to launch non-stop flights between Paris and Wuhan next April, which marks the first direct long-distance intercontinental airline to Europe from Hubei Province, China.
The new route is scheduled for regular flights three times a week starting from April 11, 2012. By then, the travelling time from Paris to Wuhan will be largely shortened to ten and a half hours.
According to Air France, the service will be carried by Boeing 777-200 with 309 seats. Flight from Paris to Wuhan will flies on Mondays Wednesdays and Fridays, while the return service will be operated on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
