Air France’s little brother Joon plans to open new routes in the following years. One of them is Paris CDG – Cape Town in South Africa. Joon targets younger travellers and commenced three direct flights a week between both cities.
The Mayor of the City of Cape Town, Patricia de Lille, commented: “It is wonderful to welcome Joon to Cape Town and I am excited to see how they bring more young visitors to our vibrant city. Air connectivity is undoubtedly a key enabler for our economy and it has the ability to create hundreds of new jobs. I am proud to say that Air Access Cape Town shows how we can deliver to all Capetonians if all three spheres of government and the private sector work together.”
“We commend the Cape Town Air Access team and all its partners on their tireless efforts in navigating ways to make Cape Town more accessible and easier to visit for people of all ages and walks of life. With a forecast increase of 22.9% year-on-year, the strength in this market holds huge opportunities for the Cape to attract an even greater share of tourists from France.” Added Tim Harris, Wesgro CEO, part of the partnership of Cape Town Air Access.
Joon’s a340’s will be used in order to operate the route, allowing over 230 people to make the budget friendly trip.
