Air France Increases Summer Service


On May 12, Air France will be adding a third daily flight out of Montreal on Mondays, Fridays and Sundays to up its weekly schedule by three extra flights.

This means that for the periods of May 12-31 and Sept. 30 to Oct. 12, travellers will be able to avail themselves of 1,400 additional seats a week.

Also, Air France’s trademark summer schedule addition of a third daily flight between Montreal-Trudeau and Paris-Charles de Gaulle will begin June 1 and run until Sept. 29. With 21 weekly flights, Montreal is second only to New York City worldwide in terms of most seats offered among Air France’s long-haul destinations.

Customers will enjoy the option of three departure times from Montreal – 4:50 p.m., 7:25 p.m. and 10:45 p.m. – and three cabin classes: Business (J), Premium Economy (W) and Economy (Y). Passengers from Ottawa also benefit from two daily shuttle services between the nation’s capital and Montreal-Trudeau airport.

And, with Toronto departures being served by a Boeing 747, there will be 120 more seats offered each day from June 15 to Aug. 31.

“Adding three flights a week out of Montreal during the pre- and post-summer schedule periods, along with the equivalent of three extra flights a week from Toronto, enables us to meet customer demand and to also offer even more flight options to travellers from the 20 cities across Canada who now have access to our network thanks to our partnership with WestJet,” commented Fabien Pelous, vice-president and general manager, Air France KLM Canada.
