MSC Cruises and Air France strengthen their cooperation on French market, with the signature of an ambitious contract, scheduling 18 rotations between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and the airport of La Romana in Dominican Republic.
Air France will use a Boeing 747-400 with a total of 432 seats, of which 36 in Business Class and 396 in Economy Class.
This agreement marks the creation of a direct Air France link between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and the airport of La Romana in Dominican Republic, dedicated to cruise passengers.
A total of 7 776 seats will be reserved to the passengers of the MSC Musica from December 7, 2014 to April 5, 2015. A dedicated check-in will be reserved to MSC Cruises customers at the Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport and Air France has planned pre-flights for customers coming from other regions of France and Europe.
This new agreement consolidates the commercial partnership formed in 2012 between MSC Cruises and Air France. Collaborations were established those past two years for cruises to several European countries, French West Indies and South America.
In 2013, Air France carried more than 12 000 MSC Cruises passengers, departing from France and this number has already increased in 2014 – with more than 28,000 passengers – due to this new link.
