    TP announces BKO [Bamako, Mali].
    Not a straightforward or expected destination. My guess is looking at the LH group Africa destinations it was the next best thing for an expansion after the openings of RAK/CMN/ALG.
    This seems well geared for connecting traffic, mostly into France [est. 120'000 Malians] and giving AF some attempted competition.
    Although I doubt a typical "paid by the company" C pax would pick a 1am arriv/2am dep over AF 21h arriv/ 23h dep given the potential of connectivity of BKO with the rest of TP Europe Network and potential good yields given the limited competition, I'm starting to think it's not a bad attempt from TP and maybe *A as a whole to take a bite out of AF captive markets

    Nothing to get excited about but if someone has been thinking about a TP account this is the time to start it.
    They're handing out 500 miles:
