Air France: Africa c. 1960
It looks as though Air France had even more routes and destinations in Africa than it does now-especially connections between the Francophone capitals. This route map is a bit difficult to decipher, with all the different colored points and lines not clearly explained. But it does appear, for instance, that Robertsfield at Monrovia, Liberia, was fully-served at the time, as was Nairobi on the way to Madagascar. Nouakchott is one of the few cities not shown here where Air France lands today.
