Air France: Seasonal US Flights to Surpass 2019 Levels

Air France plans to operate close to 200 weekly flights to 14 US destinations this summer, 20 percent more than it operated in summer 2019, the carrier announced Friday.

Service between Paris Orly and New York JFK restarted March 27 after being suspended since the beginning of the pandemic, according to Air France. In addition, Air France and Delta Air Lines are scheduled to launch a “shuttle” service between Paris Charles de Gaulle and New York JFK with eight daily flights — six operated by Air France, two operated by Delta, according to the carrier.

Air France also has resumed its Paris Charles de Gaulle and Dallas route with up to five weekly flights. On May fourth, the carrier plans to launch a seasonal route between Paris Charles de Gaulle and Denver three times weekly.

The carrier also plans to launch a nonstop route between Paris Charles de Gaulle and Quebec City on May 17 and is enhancing its overall service to Canada, with a 25 percent increase in capacity this summer compared to pre-pandemic levels.

Additional North American cities Air France will serve this summer include Atlanta, Boston, Cancun, Chicago, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Miami, Minneapolis, Montreal, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto, Vancouver, and Washington, DC
