Air France’s ground and flight teams are ready to assist clients with all of their summer travel plans.
Air France will service up to 196 destinations during the peak summer season, with a flight schedule that represents an average of 90% of the capacity deployed over the same period in 2019.
Air France’s long-haul network will be fueled by strong demand for flights to North America, Africa, the Caribbean, and the Indian Ocean, which have remained resilient during the crisis.
As a result, Air France’s capacity to and from the United States, the airline’s most important long-haul destination, continues to grow.
It will fly close to 200 weekly flights to 14 destinations this summer, which represents a 20% increase over summer 2019.
The service from Paris-Orly to New York-JFK, which had been suspended since the start of the crisis, reopened on March 27th, along with the service from Paris-Charles de Gaulle.
This summer, Air France will offer up to seven daily flights between the two cities.
Air France and Delta will also operate a unique “shuttle” service with 8 daily flights between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and New York-JFK (6 Air France flights and 2 Delta flights).
From early June, regular departures from Paris Charles-de-Gaulle will be every one to two hours during the day, with practically hourly service from late afternoon onwards for departures from New York-JFK.
Air France has recently reinstated up to five weekly flights between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Dallas (Texas). Finally, on May 4th, the airline will begin offering three weekly flights between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Denver (Colorado) for the second year in a row.
Air France is also bolstering its services to Canada, with a 25% increase in capacity compared to pre-crisis levels this summer.
As a result, it will become the largest European airline in terms of capacity between Europe and Canada, and on May 17th, 2022, it will operate a nonstop route between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Quebec City.
With the addition of new frequencies to a number of locations in Africa, Air France will return to pre-crisis levels of activity. The summer season will see two daily flights from Paris-Charles de Gaulle to Abidjan (Côte d’Ivoire), as well as seasonal services to Zanzibar (Tanzania) and Banjul (Gambia).
Finally, Air France is preserving nearly its entire Asian network, albeit with fewer flights. To coincide with the country’s reopening to international flights on March 27th, 2022, more frequencies will be added to the flight schedule to India (Delhi, Bombay, Bangalore, and Chennai).
Short and medium-haul: expanded leisure options and capacity to this summer’s most popular destinations
Air France is continuing its policy of redeploying capacity on routes to leisure destinations on the short and medium-haul network.
With the launch this summer of 23 seasonal routes from Paris-Charles de Gaulle, including three new destinations: Zakynthos* (Greece), with two weekly flights beginning July 9th, Tirana* (Albania), with two weekly flights beginning July 9th, and Tenerife (Spain), as a continuation of the winter season, it will offer capacity comparable to pre-crisis levels.
In addition to services from Paris-Charles de Gaulle, new routes to Algiers (Algeria – 3 daily flights, subject to the country’s reopening circumstances) and Tunis (Tunisia – 1 daily flight beginning May 29th) will be available on departure from Paris-Orly throughout the summer season. Additional frequencies will be added to Ibiza, Palma de Mallorca (Spain), and Bari (Italy), which are currently served in 2021.
Finally, on departure from the French regions, 47 seasonal summer services will be available on the domestic network.
This offer includes four new international routes (Marseille – Santorini, Marseille – Tunis, Nice – Heraklion, and Nice – London Heathrow, all starting July 8th), as well as domestic routes (notably to Corsica), which will be served this year from Bordeaux, Caen, Clermont-Ferrand, Lille, Lyon, Nantes, Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Paris Orly, Pau, Rennes, and Strasbourg.
Transavia will fly from Paris-Orly to Brest, Biarritz, Montpellier, Perpignan, Pau, and Toulon on the domestic network.
