Air France has taken note of the French authorities’ decision to suspend arrivals from 7 Southern African countries for a period of 48 hours as of November 26. As a result, Air France is cancelling its flights from Johannesburg to Paris (AF 995) on November 26 and Cape Town to Paris (AF 871) on November 27.
Flights to and from South Africa are cancelled on Saturday November 27 and Sunday November 28. Air France is waiting for the conditions applicable from 29 November 2021. Booked customers will be informed individually as soon as possible.
Air France teams at airports and customer relations centers are mobilized to assist customers wishing to modify or postpone their trips. As part of the “Air France Protect” measures, all Air France tickets are fully modifiable and refundable up to the day of departure for travel up to 30 June 2022.
KLM previously said “KLM will continue to fly to South Africa, operating its flights from Johannesburg and Cape Town to Amsterdam in compliance with the stricter protocol. KLM is taking the situation very seriously and will continue to prioritise the safety of passengers and crew. KLM will therefore impose strict on-board safety requirements for passengers and crew. This protocol will be in line with the requirements issued by the respective governments.
This morning two KLM flights from Cape Town and Johannesburg landed at Schiphol. All passengers were ushered off these flights to a special location at Schiphol where they are being tested. The disembarking and testing procedure is the responsibility of the GGD public health authorities.”
