Domestically, Air France will offer over 40 summer routes on departure from Paris and the French regions, including service to Corsica from Paris, Bordeaux, Caen, Lille, Lyon, Pau, Rennes, Strasbourg and Nantes.
In Europe, Air France’s schedule will focus on popular leisure destinations in Greece, Portugal, Spain and Italy, on departure from Paris and the French regions. Compared to summer 2019, the airline will increase capacity to Greece by nearly 80 percent and to Portugal by almost 25 percent. As part of their long-haul schedule, the carrier will offer up to three daily flights to Pointe-à-Pitre (Guadeloupe), Fort-de-France (Martinique) and Saint-Denis de la Réunion on departure from Paris-Orly and Paris-CDG, facilitating connections throughout Air France’s global network.
