Air France Begins Progressive Resumption of Flight Schedule

Air France has announced that it plans to gradually resume its flights between now and the end of June as demand for air travel begins to rise. The French carrier is currently operating between three and five percent of its usual schedule, which it has been doing since the end of March due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

The airline’s current flight program is focused on maintaining links with the French regions and key destinations both in Europe and across the world to support essential passenger and cargo journeys.

From the 43 destinations currently being served, a gradual increase in the number of destinations and service frequencies will be increased to around 15% of the airline’s usual schedule at this time of year. 75 of the airline’s 224 aircraft will be operating in the network next month.

From Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport, the airline looks to up its offering to 15 destinations in Metropolitan France, five destinations in French Overseas Departments and the Caribbean, 41 European destinations, six destinations in the Middle East, seven African cities – with an outlook for extra services subject to government approval – six North American destinations, three South American destinations and eight destinations in Asia.

Air France is also due to resume some domestic services from Lyon, serving eleven destinations in France.

The increase in services operated by the airline for June will show Air France return to over 90 destinations across the world for either passenger or cargo transport, operating to over double the number of destinations served since reduced operations began.

Services to Saint-Martin; Abidjan, Ivory Coast; Bamako, Mali; Boston; Panama City; Bangkok; Ho Chi Minh City and Shanghai will operate exclusively to carry cargo.

The airline is to publish its flight schedule for July and August at the beginning of June to allow for continued monitoring of the situation, subject to evolving passenger and cargo demand.
