From October 30, the French airline will open a new route between Paris CDG and Raleigh-Durham (North Carolina), and increase frequencies to Canada.
Backed by one of the most dynamic markets in its global network, Air France has announced that it will further strengthen its routes to the USA and Canada this winter.
Air France takes over a route neglected by Delta
As of October 30, Air France will thus add a new American destination to its network: Raleigh-Durham. The North Carolina state capital will be Air France's fourteenth destination in the United States this winter, after Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York JFK, New York Newark, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington DC. There will be three direct flights a week from Paris CDG, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, operated by a Boeing 787-9 with a capacity of 279 seats in tri-class configuration (30 in business, 21 in premium economy and 228 in economy class). This route was previously operated by Delta Air Lines, Air France's partner in the transatlantic joint venture between Air France, KLM, Delta and Virgin Atlantic. In addition to the opening of Raleigh, the winter season to the USA will be marked by an increase in flight frequencies to Dallas, with five frequencies per week, up from 3 in 2022.
Air France will also be strengthening its offer this winter to Canada. Europe's leading airline in terms of capacity between Europe and Canada, Air France will link Paris CDG to Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver and Ottawa this winter. Inaugurated on June 27, the direct service between Paris CDG and Ottawa will be extended for the winter season. Five frequencies will be offered on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, operated by Boeing 787-9 aircraft with a capacity of 279 seats in three-class configuration (30 in business class, 21 in premium economy, 228 in economy class). Services to Montreal and Vancouver will also be strengthened, with up to 21 and 5 frequencies per week respectively, compared with 17 and 3 last winter. This winter, KLM will connect its Amsterdam-Schiphol hub to 19 destinations in North and Central America: Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Calgary, Cancun, Chicago, Edmonton, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Miami, Minneapolis-Saint Paul, Montreal, New York JFK, San Francisco, Toronto, Vancouver and Washington DC.
