Air France-KLM VA presents Destination Saturdays Vol. 14: Mumbai | @OMDB - 311700ZMAR18

Event Description:
Join us as we take to the skies once again for the 14th installment of Destination Saturdays. Departing from Dubai International Airport, we head southeast across the Gulf of Oman and the Arabian Sea bound for Mumbai, home to the iconic Gateway of India stone arch, built by the British Raj in 1924, located on the picturesque Mumbai Harbour waterfront.

Air France – KLM Virtual cordially invites you to experience Destination Saturdays, our signature event series dedicated to traversing the most iconic destinations, beautiful airports, and challenging approaches across the globe. Some describe it as career mode for the world traveller at heart, while others say we’ve set out to finish what Amelia Earhart started. However, you look at it, Destination Saturdays is sure to deliver fun times flying with friends (old and new). Be part of the journey every other week as we pick up where we last left off!
