As France prepares to welcome the world for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games – of which Air France is a proud partner – the airline’s teams are going all out for the delegations, athletes and fans that will be arriving for the world’s biggest event.

Long-haul: Capacity up 9%. Flights to 85 destinations

Come summer 2024, North America will be seeing even more of Air France. The airline is:

  • Resuming flights to Minneapolis (Minnesota), with one daily flight.
  • Inaugurating a new direct service between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Phoenix (Arizona), 3 times a week aboard a Boeing 787-9.
  • Extending the direct service to Raleigh-Durham (North Carolina) it inaugurated in winter 2023, and upping the number of weekly flights to 7, from 3 during the winter season.

For the Cannes Film Festival, Air France will operate 2 special flights between Los Angeles (USA) and Nice (France), on Airbus A350-900s equipped with the latest travel cabins. This summer, Air France will fly to the United States over 210 times a week, serving a total of 17 destinations[1]. It will also operate close to 60 fights to 5 Canadian cities[2].

Alongside growing its North American network, the airline’s major plans for summer 2024 also include:

  • Extending the daily Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) service from Paris-Charles de Gaulle it introduced in winter 2023 through the summer of 2024.
  • Resuming the direct Dar Es Salam (Tanzania) service it inaugurated in summer 2023, with 3 weekly flights as a continuation of Zanzibar.
  • More flights to Japan, including 2 daily flights between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Tokyo-Haneda, plus its service to Tokyo-Narita with 4 flights a week.
  • Increased frequencies on key African and Indian Ocean routes. Cotonou (Benin) and Antananarivo (Madagascar) will now enjoy daily flights. There will be two daily flights to Cameroon, shared between Yaoundé and Douala. And flights to Brazzaville (Republic of the Congo) will now be aboard an Airbus A350-900.

The airline’s total long-haul capacity will rise by 9% versus 2023.
