A summer of surprises with Air France


Even more… destinations, services and comfort

Tokyo-Haneda in Japan, Brasilia the capital of the country hosting the World Cup, or Stavanger in Norway: Air France is expanding its network of non-stop routes. New partnerships are increasing the number of connecting opportunities, for example in Brazil, where the airline GOL is enabling us to cover 28 additional destinations in Brazil*  via Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo.

The comfort of the A380 is available daily to new destinations: Hong Kong and San Francisco. These two routes are in addition to the existing routes to Los Angeles, New York-JFK, Washington-DC, Johannesburg and Shanghai.

On short and medium-haul flights, the Seat Plus, which offers more legroom, is now available on all flights for customers travelling in the Economy and Premium Economy cabins, at an additional cost of 10, 15 or 20 euros depending on the length of flight.

Rapidity, simplicity, fluidity: this summer’s watchword

Air France is implementing self-service channels at the airport for its short and medium-haul customers to make their time at the airport easier, smoother and faster, with a self-tag system, new signage and new automatic baggage drop-off points at Paris-Charles De Gaulle, Orly and Nice.

Finally, this summer and all year round, Air France teams will reply to customers in less than an hour, 24/7 on the social networks: @airfrance, @ airfranceFr and on Facebook.

Summertime on the menu!

With new gourmet recipes and “à la carte” menus for all** – costing between 12 and 28 euros – Air France aims to offer services tailored to its customers in the long-haul Premium Economy and Economy cabin. Star-studded dishes are on the menu in La Première and Business. Famous chefs have designed excluive menus for Air France. The regions of Ardeche and Auvergne, embodied by Régis Marcon and his 3 Michelin stars, are highlighted in Business. In La Première, the menu for June and July has been designed by Joël Robuchon, the chef with the most Michelin stars and Chairman of the Servair Culinary Studio. Régis Marcon will take over in August and September. And as always in summer, Air France went to Provence to select two fruity rosé wines to enhance its wine list.

Inflight sales and special attention

With a Baccarat clear crystal stopper, The Different Company perfume holder, Sisley anti-age skin cream and leather Air France trinket tray, Air France’s range of inflight sales boasts a new “Preference” range.

This service is in addition to Air France’s paper press offer worldwide in its lounges, boarding areas and on board its aircraft.
