Air France has announced its plans for the summer 2024 season, which include the expansion of its global network and the ongoing rollout of new long-haul cabins. The airline will be serving 189 destinations in 74 countries, with new routes from Paris-Charles de Gaulle to Phoenix (USA), Verona (Italy), Kalamata (Greece), and Narvik-Lofoten (Norway).

As France prepares to host the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Air France, a proud partner of the event, is gearing up to welcome delegations, athletes, and fans from around the world.

The airline’s long-haul capacity will increase by 9%, with flights to 85 destinations. In North America, Air France will resume flights to Minneapolis, inaugurate a new direct service to Phoenix, extend the direct service to Raleigh-Durham, and offer special flights between Los Angeles and Nice for the Cannes Film Festival. The airline will operate over 210 flights per week to 17 destinations in the United States and close to 60 flights to 5 Canadian cities.

Other major plans for the summer 2024 season include extending the daily service to Abu Dhabi, resuming the direct service to Dar Es Salam, increasing frequencies to Japan, and boosting flights on key African and Indian Ocean routes.

Air France will continue to refurbish its Boeing 777-300ERs and Airbus A350-900s with the latest long-haul cabins, offering a new travel experience in Business, Premium Economy, and Economy classes. These new cabins will be introduced on flights to various destinations, including Toronto, Chicago, Vancouver, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Papeete, Mexico, and Tokyo-Narita.

On short- and medium-haul routes, Air France will serve 102 destinations, with 45 seasonal routes in France and Europe. Three new routes will be introduced from Paris-Charles de Gaulle to Verona, Narvik-Lofoten, and Kalamata.

Transavia France, Air France-KLM Group’s low-cost subsidiary, will fly to 116 destinations in 33 countries via 206 routes, maintaining its position as the top low-cost airline operating out of Paris’ airports.
