Routing and Seats

You can fly with either KLM or Air France to Rio de Janeiro. Therefore, you will have to change in Amsterdam or Paris. Flights are usually operated with a Boeing 777 or Boeing 787 (the latter one only with KLM).

Please note that Air France is using their old Boeing 777 until at least March 2022. The business class in these old airplanes does not offer lie flat business class seats. You recognize the old seats when booking by seeing a 2-3-2 seat configuration. We suggest avoiding these flights as the experience will be much worse than with the new business class.

Search & Book

According to the fare rules these flights can be booked until February 17, 2022 for departing flights before October 31, 2022.

For the best prices, the minimum stay is at least 10 days in Rio de Janeiro. Otherwise fares are about €100 more expensive.

Finding possible dates is a bit harder than usually. Google Flights only displays €100 more expensive fares. Even the KLM best price search doesn’t show proper fares. So, you can also just browse through the websites of KLM or Air France and check for possible dates there.
