Air France Adds New Route from YOW; Serves 5 Canadian Gateways in Summer 2023

With strong demand and the lifting of final remaining travel restrictions, Air France has revealed the airline will be operating at 2019 levels. For the 2023 summer season, Air France will be flying up to 835 times a day, to 191 destinations in 89 countries.

More Canada Flights

Air France's summer 2023 schedule includes 50 flights to 5 Canadian cities.

The airline will resume flying between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Quebec City on 02MAY, 2023, and will introduce a new Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle-Ottawa flight on 27MAY.  Air France will be the only airline operating direct flights between Ottawa and Europe, and this summer will become the leading European air carrier in terms of capacity connecting Europe and Canada.

Reopening of flights to U.S., China and East Africa

The summer season of 2023 will mark a turning point in Air France’s long-haul flight schedule. Air France will operate up to 180 flights a week from/to 14 US destinations, including two airports in New York: John F. Kennedy and Newark Liberty.

The resumption of service to China will spark a return to more flights in Asia. Flying to Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong will gradually increase throughout spring to reach one daily flight per destination by 01JUL, or 21 flights a week.

Still in Asia, Air France will continue boosting capacity to Tokyo (Japan), where the airline serves both airports. Up to 11 weekly flights to Tokyo Haneda and 3 to Tokyo Narita.

Very active in Africa throughout the pandemic, Air France will continue to maintain seat capacities there at above 2019 levels. In JUN, the airline will begin flying to Dar Es Salaam (Tanzania) as a continuation of the service to Zanzibar, also a recent Tanzanian destination, inaugurated in 2021. Boeing 787-9 daily departures to Nairobi (Kenya) will become a direct flight.

Finally, in the Caribbean, Air France will inaugurate a new flight on 05MAY, 2023, linking Cayenne (French Guiana) and Belém (Brazil), once a week on Airbus A320.

These additions to the schedule will raise Air France’s number of long-haul destinations to 85.

France and Europe: 106 destinations and 66 seasonal routes across France and Europe

This summer, Air France will fly up to 650 times a day to 106 French and European destinations to further facilitate short- and medium-haul travel for its customers.

Over and above its regular schedule, the airline will operate 66 seasonal routes in France and Europe, taking off from Paris and regional French airports. These flights will make it possible to reach Corsica (from Paris, Bordeaux, Caen, Rennes, Lille, Lyon and Nantes), Greece (from Paris, Marseille, Nice and Toulouse), Algeria (from Paris, Marseille, Nice and Toulouse), Morocco (from Paris and Nice), and Tunisia as well (from Paris, Marseille and Nice).

Meanwhile, the Air France-KLM Group’s low-cost affiliate, Transavia France, will operate close to 200 short- and medium-haul routes to 120 destinations this summer, including 100 from/to Paris-Orly. According to the airline, this will make it the top low-cost airline operating out of Paris’ airports.
