With the U.S. border reopening to vaccinated international travellers on Nov. 8, Air France has seen “a significant increase” in bookings on its routes to New York, Miami, and Los Angeles, for travel in November and over the Christmas holiday period.
To support the resumption of traffic on transatlantic routes, Air France will gradually increase its capacity during the winter season. Between now and the end of March 2022, the company plans to return to a capacity corresponding to around 90% of that of 2019, compared to 50% in summer 2021.
To do this, it will add frequencies to its service to New York (from 3 to 5 daily flights), Miami (from 7 to 12 weekly flights) and Los Angeles (from 12 to 17 weekly flights).
During this period, Air France will also resume flights from Paris-Charles de Gaulle to Seattle, after suspending the service since the beginning of the COVID crisis (3 weekly flights as from Dec. 6), and it will resume its usual Paris-Papeete route, via Los Angeles (3 weekly flights between Los Angeles and Papeete as from Nov. 11, 2021), and inaugurate a new route between Pointe-à-Pitre and New York JFK (2 weekly flights as from Nov. 24, 2021).
This winter, Air France will serve 11 destinations in the United States – New York-JFK – the airline’s largest international station – along with Boston, Washington DC, Detroit, Atlanta, Chicago, Miami, Houston, Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, with up to 122 weekly flights.
