Western Cape marketing agency, Wesgro, has announced that a new airline, called ‘joon’ will have direct flights from Paris to Cape Town next year.

Wesgro spokesperson, Russel Brueton says the airline, which is part of Air France, has been designed to meet the expectations of younger travellers in particular.

He says the new service will replace the current Air France service offering, and will fly from Paris to Cape Town three times a week, from April next year.

Brueton says the increase in flights will not only be good for the Western Cape’s tourism industry, but also for business.
