OUR HISTORY: LEGEND

The history of Air France is inextricably linked with the history of civil aviation and its technical and operational advances. From the very first flights in the 1910s to Concorde, tremendous feats have been accomplished by a few hundred men and women with a great love for far-off places and innovation. As the capacity of its aircraft has increased, Air France has always prioritised the safety and comfort of its customers and excellent on-board services. Thanks to its assets, the airline is now part of AFKL, the world’s leading airline group.
