SkyTeam member Air France brings this deal today from Italy to Ouagadougou starting at €617. The fare includes the premium economy seat on the flights to and from Burkina Faso and includes 23kg of checked luggage. Departures are available from April to January 2025 with blackout dates for summer vacations.
For changes, a fee of 250€ (plus any applicable fare difference) is charged. Cancellations are not permitted for the cheapest fare in premium economy class. When booking through a third-party provider, additional processing fees usually apply.
Most EU citizens will need a visa to enter Burkina Faso. You can find additional information on the government’s eVisa website.
These are some of the airports where you can take advantage of this deal:
Our availability calendar highlights all possible flight dates at the lowest price for trips up to 28 days. It will forward you to Air France with your selected flight dates.
Your feeder flights to Paris will be either on the Air France Airbus 220 with a 2-3 configuration or the Airbus 320 family with a 3-3 configuration. Your intercontinental flights are operated by the Air France Airbus 330 with a 2-3-2 configuration in premium economy. On the inbound leg of the trip, you will have a technical stop in Accra.
Search & Book
This deal doesn’t have an expiration but a minimum stay of six days or a Saturday overnight stay, and a maximum stay of twelve months applies. Available dates are between April to January 2025 with blackout dates for summer vacations.
The prices displayed on Google Flights are higher than the prices on Air France, and for some combinations, the price will decrease after selecting the inbound flight on Air France’s website. It may require some trial and error, but the potential savings could make it worthwhile.
You can find suitable dates using our calendar above or with the help of Google Flights. We recommend booking directly on Air France’s website, but you can find cheaper prices with Skyscanner. However, booking on OTAs has its downsides.
Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?
More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:
Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.
If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward information like flight changes instead of receiving them directly from the airline. In many cases, you may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.
This especially applies to premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
Baggage and Other Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are industry standard by now. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.
This also applies to other things like food services, insurances or priority treatment. In almost all cases, you pay less for additional amenities when booking on the airlines’ website.
This ticket is issued in booking class Y for the feeder flights and A for the premium economy legs to/from Burkina Faso. Here are the miles and points you can earn from this deal from Bologna:
