All Air France staff, bot on the ground and onboard, are committed to guaranteeing our passengers the highest levels of health and safety.”
Air France recommends that guests contact the relevant authorities regarding entry and travel requirements for their destination and transit countries, which may have changed due to restrictions related to the global COVID-19 pandemic. The carrier also reminds customers that temperature checks will be carried out before boarding and guests must wear surgical masks onboard all flights. Air France has enhanced their daily aircraft cleaning procedures including regular cabin disinfection with an approved virucidal spray.
