Re: Trivia 2021 (miscellaneous news)

Yes that seemed logical, but it could be something else: repatriation requested by one or more governments, cargo flight.

There are still repatriation flights at Roissy. And during the 1st lockdown Hifly operated a lot of cargo flights at CDG, with its A340s.

Thanks again
