On Tuesday (May 17, 2022), Air France announced the launch of new nonstop service between Paris-Charles de Gaulle (CDG) and Quebec City (YQB). The route will be operated three times weekly on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays until October 27, 2022. Quebec City is Air France’s fourth destination in Canada, complementing existing service to Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. Travelers inbound to Paris will also enjoy seamless onward one-stop connectivity via Charles de Gaulle to Air France’s global network of nearly 200 destinations across all continents. The new direct service is in addition to the daily Air France bus service linking Montreal Pierre Elliott Trudeau Airport to Quebec City, which is free of charge for all customers connecting from an Air France flight.
Air France flight AF352 departs Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 13:25 and arrives in Quebec City on the same day at 14:55, while the return flight, AF353, departs Quebec City at 17:00 and arrives in Paris at 05:45 the following morning (all times local).
The route between Paris-CDG and Quebec City will be operated with an Airbus A330-200 with new cabins and Wi-Fi available throughout the flight. Business Class guests will enjoy a seat that transforms into a fully-flat two meter bed, while Premium Economy Class customers will appreciate an extra-wide fixed seat shell that offers a generous 130 degree recline, as well as lumbar support. Economy Class seats feature ergonomic foam and a comfortable 118 degree recline. All seats are equipped with Air France’s latest-generation IFE system, offering over 1,000 hours of films, series and programs on large HD touch screens, along with individual USB charging ports.
Located on the banks of the St. Lawrence River, Quebec City is the capital of the province of Quebec and has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1985. The city’s historic centre, Old Quebec, is the only fortified city in North America. Quebec City was once the gateway to New France and is now a lively destination offering festivals and major cultural events throughout the year. The exceptional natural parks in the region and in the east of the province also offer the opportunity for visitors to experience the stunning beauty of Quebec’s great outdoors.
