Air France has launched new nonstop flights between Dallas Fort Worth International (DFW) Airport and Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG) Airport, strengthening the strong ties between North Texas and one of its biggest trading partners. Air France will operate up to five weekly flights on the Airbus A330, equipped with its new Business, Premium Economy and Economy cabins.
Air France is the national flag carrier of France and has become the 13th international passenger carrier serving DFW Airport. It is a founding member of the SkyTeam alliance.
The new nonstop service to Paris means DFW will offer 17 daily flights to nine European cities this summer, almost doubling service to this vital region from nine flights to five destinations just five years ago. This summer will also mark the addition of two additional destinations, Munich and Dublin.
