Flight AF703, travelling from Abidjan to France’s Charles De Gaulle airport, arrived late on Tuesday in the French capital.
The body of a stowaway has been found in the landing gear of an aircraft that landed in Paris after a flight from the Ivory Coast.
The carrier, Air France, said on Wednesday that an investigation was underway.
A statement by the national airline described the incident as a “human tragedy”, but declined to comment on French media reports that the stowaway was a child.
A source in the office of the local prosecutor leading the investigation said she was not aware of the stowaway’s age or identity.
