On the eve of the Olympic Games in Paris, the leading airline Air France is increasing the number of transatlantic flights. Firstly, the airline is reinstating its route from Minneapolis/St. Louis.

Air France has announced the expansion of its flights to Paris from the United States, just in time for the upcoming Summer Olympics. This was reported by Travel and Leisure.

In particular, the airline is resuming its Minneapolis/St. Louis route to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) on a daily basis, as well as increasing its service from Raleigh-Durham (RDU) to the capital from 3 times a week to 7 times a week.

Flights on the Minneapolis route will begin on May 13, and the Raleigh-Durham to Paris route, which previously operated only three times a week starting from October 30, 2023, will now operate seven times a week.

The new flights come as Paris will host the Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games, scheduled to take place from July 26 to August 11 and from August 28 to September 8, respectively.

Air France earlier announced a new flight between Paris and Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, scheduled to begin on May 23. The new route will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays throughout the summer.

In addition, for travelers planning a trip to the Cannes Film Festival in May 2024, Air France announced that it will operate two flights from Los Angeles, California (LAX) to Nice, France (NCE).

It is noted that Air France has recently commissioned Chef Dominique Crenn to develop and prepare a new menu for La Première and Business Class cabins. The Michelin-starred chef has created signature dishes for the airline, such as lobster with pico de gallo and tea sauce, as well as California charbonnier with quinoa, the airline reports.

The article also adds that Air France currently serves 189 destinations in 74 countries.
