Madagascar Airlines, formerly known as Air Madagascar, is set to enhance its connectivity between Antananarivo and Paris this summer.

The Malagasy national carrier will introduce a second weekly flight on the route, catering to the growing demand for travel between the two destinations. The service will be operational from June 13 to September 13, 2023, as per the information obtained from the Global Distribution System (GDS) consulted by Aeroroutes.

Expanded Flight Schedule

Passengers can now enjoy the convenience of two flights per week between Antananarivo-Ivato and Paris-CDG airports. The flights will be operated by Madagascar Airlines’ Airbus A340-300 (registration: 5R-EAA), which boasts a comfortable seating configuration. The aircraft can accommodate 30 passengers in Business class, 21 in Economy plus, and 224 in Economy. Departures are scheduled for Wednesdays and Sundays at 10:00 p.m., arriving the following day at 8:05 a.m. Return flights from France will depart on Tuesdays and Saturdays at 3:50 p.m., with an arrival time of 4:00 a.m. the next day.

This expansion of Madagascar Airlines’ Paris operations enables travelers to enjoy increased flexibility and options when planning their trips between Antananarivo and the French capital. The additional flight frequency aims to cater to the rising demand for travel and provide enhanced convenience for passengers.

Competition and Connectivity

Madagascar Airlines will face competition on the Antananarivo-Paris route from established carriers such as Air France and Corsair, who operate flights between Antananarivo and Paris via Réunion.

Indirect options are also available through carriers like Air Austral, Air Mauritius, Ethiopian Airlines, Kenya Airways, and Turkish Airlines. The intensified competition underscores the growing importance of the route and the attractiveness of Madagascar as a destination for travelers from around the world.

Moreover, Madagascar Airlines, resulting from the merger of Air Madagascar and Tsaradia, offers a comprehensive network of domestic and regional connections. In addition to the Paris service, the airline provides flights to nine domestic airports and four regional airports. Travelers can explore the beautiful destinations of Saint-Denis in Réunion, Dzaoudzi in Mayotte, Port-Louis in Mauritius, and Moroni in the Comoros through the extensive network of Madagascar Airlines.
