Quebec City, a fortified treasure on the Saint-Laurent River
Quebec City is the capital of the Canadian province of Quebec. Classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1985, its historic centre - Old Quebec - is the only fortified city in North America.
Once the gateway to New France, Quebec City is now a buoyant city where festivals and major cultural events take place throughout the year. The exceptional natural parks in its region and in the east of the province are ideal opportunities to discover the beauty of Quebec's great outdoors.
Air France in Canada
Present in Canada since 1950, Air France links Paris-Charles de Gaulle to Montreal (Air France's 2nd international destination with up to 4 daily flights), Toronto (up to 2 daily flights) and Vancouver (up to 1 daily flight) all year round.
This summer, Air France's capacity to and from Canada will be 25% higher than before the pandemic. Air France will thus become the leading European airline in terms of capacity between Europe and Canada.
