Air France is extending its business class service to customers on its domestic network, on departing flights from Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Paris-Orly and other French cities, which will also be available on short-haul flights connecting the French regions to international destinations.

Now business class customers with a connection on a long, medium or short-haul flight to or from France can book all the way in business class service at no extra cost throughout their trip. 

A tailor-made business cabin for travel within France offers three types of fares; Business Leisure: a non-refundable ticket, modifiable for a fee of €70; Business Flex: a refundable ticket, modifiable at no extra cost, and Business Abonné: a refundable ticket, modifiable at no extra cost, including an option to take an earlier or later flight.

Air France business class customers will benefit from special services such as SkyPriority channels at the airports which offer dedicated check-in and baggage drop-off, Priority lines at security checkpoints and passport control, priority boarding, priority at transfer desks during connections, and expedited baggage delivery.

Customers also benefit from access to the Air France lounges where they can enjoy something to eat, work, rest or ask for information. The lounges for short-haul flights are available at Paris-Charles de Gaulle (Terminals F and G), Paris-Orly 1, Bordeaux and Lyon airports. The airline’s partner lounges are available at Paris-Orly (terminal 1A), Marseille, Nice, Toulouse, Montpellier and Mulhouse airports.
