On Thursday (April 15, 2021), Air France announced the launch of new service between Paris-Charles de Gaulle (CDG) and Denver International Airport (DEN) starting July 2, 2021. The carrier will offer up to three weekly nonstop flights on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays and the route will be operated with a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. The aircraft is configured with 30 Business, 21 Premium Economy and 228 Economy Class seats. The addition of Denver strengthens Air France’s U.S. network, and subject to the easing of travel restrictions, the carrier will serve 12 U.S. gateways for summer 2021 including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, San Francisco and Washington D.C.


The new route marks the first time that Denver is directly connected to Europe by a SkyTeam member airline. The flight schedule is subject to change due to travel restrictions and since the beginning of the global COVID-19 pandemic, Air France has been adjusting their schedule in real time. Customers are advised to check the destination entry requirements prior to travel. Air France guests will enjoy flying on the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner which offers onboard Wi-Fi, 30 percent larger windows than similar aircraft, and improved air pressure and humidity levels. Additionally, the aircraft offers a 20 percent reduction in fuel burn and CO2, as well as a reduced noise footprint.


Air France currently offers fully modifiable tickets for all bookings through December 31, 2021. Reservations can be changed without fees and customers can obtain a refundable credit voucher if they no longer wish to travel. If the trip is canceled by the carrier, customers can postpone their trip, request a full ticket refund, or receive a credit voucher, which is also refundable if not used. Many destinations will require travelers to provide a negative COVID-19 test result prior to departure. The SkyTeam alliance has developed an interactive map of approved testing centers which is available on the airfrance.com website.
