After 30 Years, Air France Returns to Kilimanjaro, Tanzania



After nearly a 30-year absence, Air France is returning to Kilimanjaro, Tanzania with scheduled passenger service. The airline will relaunch service from Paris-Charles de Gaulle to Kilimanjaro, with effect from 18 November, 2024.


The new route will be linked to its existing Zanzibar service and will be operated 3 times a week (on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays) by an Airbus A350-900 offering 34 seats in Business Class, 24 in Premium Economy Class and 266 in Economy Class.


This Paris-Zanzibar-Kilimanjaro route will replace the Paris-Zanzibar-Dar es Salam route operated by Air France until now. Dar es Salam will remain accessible via Amsterdam, with KLM operating flights to the Tanzanian capital 6 times a week.


In addition to Dar es Salam, KLM also flies to Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar, also in Tanzania. Dar es Salam will remain accessible via Amsterdam, with KLM operating flights to the Tanzanian capital 7 times a week. As a result of these new developments, Air France and KLM will offer customers a wider choice of operating days and times.


Flight AF874 departs Paris CDG at 10:10am on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, and arrives Zanzibar at 9:10pm. The flight departs Zanzibar at 10:55pm and arrives Kilimanjaro at 11:55pm. Flight AF874 departs Kilimanjaro at 1:25am on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, and arrives Paris CDG at 8:50am. All times are local.


Known as the Roof of Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro is the continent's highest mountain. It has three main volcanic peaks: Mawenzi, Kibo and Shira, and offers a wide range of itineraries for hikers.


Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Kilimanjaro National Park is also the ideal starting point for a safari in Kenya or Tanzania. The region offers a pristine natural environment filled with a wide variety of landscapes and a great diversity of animal and plant species.


Details of the flight schedule and fares are available on www.airfrance.com.


It should be recalled that Air France last operated passenger service to Kilimanjaro in 1996.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

Good location astounding but the staffs are rude and they make me wait so long for the service. They charge me more than what is on the website and did not refund me the manager is not helping with the issue

Thank you for sharing such a detailed review about ethiopian airlines in your post. I am an avid traveller and keep reading flight reviews to assess the options available. Your review particularly drew my attention because you have shared so many pictures to capture every aspect of the flight experience. It is a very nice effort.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
