Air France has made this announcement:

  • Resumption of flights between Paris-Orly and New York-JFK, and between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Dallas/Fort Worth
  • Resumption of seasonal service to Denver (Colorado) initially launched in summer 2021
  • 14 destinations served in summer 2022 with close to 200 weekly flights, 20% more than during summer 2019

Since the reopening of US borders in November 2021, Air France has been gradually increasing its service to the United States, the airline’s leading long-haul destination in terms of seat capacity.

Air France currently serves 11 US destinations (Atlanta, Boston, Chicago (O’Hare), Detroit, Houston (Bush Intercontinental), Los Angeles, Miami, New York-JFK, Seattle/Tacoma, San Francisco and Washington (Dulles)), with capacity between France and the United States corresponding to 90% of 2019 levels.

For the summer 2022 season (April – October), Air France plans to continue to increase capacity on US routes. As of 27 March 2022, the company will resume flights between Paris-Orly and New York JFK, with 1 daily flight. New York will thus be served by two Paris airports; Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Air France’s international hub, and Paris-Orly, with a total of up to 7 daily flights.

On the same day, the airline will resume flights from Paris-Charles de Gaulle to Dallas/Fort Worth (Texas), with up to 5 weekly flights.

Finally on May 4, 2022, Air France will start operating a seasonal service between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Denver (Colorado) for the second year running, with 3 weekly flights operated.

Air France will therefore serve 14 destinations in the United States on departure from Paris this summer – Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New York JFK, San Francisco, Seattle/Tacoma and Washington D.C, with close to 200 weekly flights, 20% more than during summer 2019.

“Ready To Fly” service now available on all flights to and from the US

In July 2021, Air France launched “Ready To Fly”, a free and optional service allowing customers to request and receive confirmation that they have all the health documents required for their trip before going to the airport. This service provides customers greater peace of mind and a smoother boarding process, by avoiding multiple checks on the day of departure.

Popular with customers, Ready To Fly is being progressively deployed throughout the Air France network. It is currently available on more than 140 routes on departure from 80 airports, representing more than 600 daily flights including all flights to and from the United States.
