“We are also the number one carrier to Mexico. Since 21st October 2011 we have been operating three flights weekly from Dublin via Paris to Cancun, with 85 connections onwards to 14 destinations in Mexico in partnership with Aeromexico.

“We now have apps for Paris CDG and Amsterdam Schiphol Airports – including in Chinese! – and to the already extensive Air France / KLM network in Africa KLM will be adding Luanda on 27th March 2012 and Lusaka on 15th May 2012.

“From 30th April 2012 Air France will also be reintroducing the A380 from Paris CDG to Tokyo, joining the current A380 services to Johannesburg, Montreal, New York and Washington DC.
