Inbound flights will leave Paris at 1:55 p.m., landing in Toronto at 4:05 p.m. All aircraft will be equipped with Air France’s Affaires business class; Voyageur economy seating, as well as its Premium Voyageur cabin featuring a 48 cm wide fixed-shell seat providing 40% added personal space compared with economy. “Our Toronto-Paris flights offer passengers three cabin classes to choose from and the opportunity to experience France the moment they are greeted aboard by our flight crew,”commented Fabien Pelous, vice-president and chief executive of Air France-KLM Canada. He added, “Out of Toronto, in addition to Air France’s offering, we also provide two daily KLM flights to Amsterdam from where travellers can connect to eight French destinations.”(
