The French company will in particular open from October 30 a new link between Paris CDG and Raleigh-Durham (North Carolina) and strengthen the frequencies to Canada.

Relying on one of the most dynamic markets in its global network, Air France has announced that it will further strengthen its connections to the United States and Canada this winter.

Air France takes over a route abandoned by Delta

From October 30, Air France will thus add a new American destination to its network: Raleigh-Durham. The capital of the state of North Carolina will be Air France’s fourteenth destination in the United States this winter, after Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York JFK, New York Newark , San Francisco, Seattle and Washington DC. Three direct flights will be provided each week from Paris CDG, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, operated by Boeing 787-9 with a capacity of 279 seats in three-class configuration (30 in business, 21 in premium economy and 228 economy class). It should be noted that this route was previously operated by Delta Air Lines, Air France’s partner within the framework of the transatlantic joint venture bringing together Air France, KLM, Delta and Virgin Atlantic. In addition to the opening of Raleigh, the winter season to the United States will be marked by the increase in flight frequencies to Dallas, with five frequencies per week, compared to 3 in 2022.

Frequency reinforcement

Air France will also strengthen its offer this winter to Canada. First European airline in terms of capacity between Europe and Canada, Air France will link Paris CDG to Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver and Ottawa this winter. Inaugurated on June 27, the direct link between Paris CDG and Ottawa will be extended for the winter season. Five frequencies will be offered on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays operated by Boeing 787-9 with a capacity of 279 seats in three-class configuration (30 in business class, 21 in premium economy, 228 in economy class). Services to Montreal and Vancouver will also be reinforced with up to 21 and 5 frequencies respectively per week, compared to 17 and 3 last winter. As a reminder, KLM will connect its Amsterdam-Schiphol hub to 19 destinations in North and Central America this winter: Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Calgary, Cancun, Chicago, Edmonton, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Mexico, Miami, Minneapolis-Saint Paul, Montreal, New York JFK, San Francisco, Toronto, Vancouver and Washington DC.
