First Europe air connection for Wuhan

9 November 2011
Air France will become the first airline to offer direct flights between Wuhan and Europe. From 11 April 2012, it will begin operating scheduled services between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Wuhan Tianhe International Airport.

The new service will operate three times a week. Flights will depart from Paris on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, returning from Wuhan the following day.

Capital of the central province of Hubei and situated in the middle reaches of the Yangtze River, Wuhan has a population of around 9m.

France has strong historical connections with the city. Along with Britain, Germany and Russia, it established mercantile concessions in Wuhan in the late 19th century. The French concession was the last to be returned to Chinese administration, in 1946.

There remains a large French presence in the city, with many expatriates working for companies such as Alstom, PSA Peugeot- Citroën and Areva.
