Air France is increasing its service to Havana.
The French carrier announced this week that it would be adding an additional Wednesday flight from Paris to Havana beginning in October.
That flight will increase its offer to 11 weekly flights to Cuba.
Air France currently operates a daily flight in the summer season and four additional weekly flights by winter 2015.
Air France partner KLM has been linking Amsterdam and Havana with three weekly flights in the summer and four in the winter.
Last year, Air France and Cubana de Aviacion signed an interline agreement allowing Cuba’s national carrier to fly to more than 30 Air France destinations in both Europe and the Caribbean, and allowing Air France to access Cubana’s local market.
Air France operates its Cuba service on Boeing 777-300 planes with 468 seats.
