From 2 to 11 September, 2022, Air France is sponsoring the 48th Deauville American Film Festival, celebrating the diversity of American cinema, from major Hollywood blockbusters to independent productions. The company has been supporting this world-renowned festival since 2014 and promotes American cinema all year round on board its long-haul aircraft.
The best of Air France on display in Deauville
This year, festival-goers will be able to exclusively discover and try out the new Air France Business cabin on show at the Deauville International Centre, one of the festival’s key venues. The company is also organizing a competition with airline tickets up for grabs for the lucky winners.
Progressively deployed on board 12 Air France Boeing 777-300, this cabin will be available on flights from Paris to New York JFK starting autumn 2022. The new Business seat reclines to become a real lie-flat bed nearly 2 metres long. Each passenger has direct access to the central aisle and, for optimum privacy, a new sliding door allows passengers to create a totally private space, out of sight from the other passengers in the cabin. The seat features a wide 17.3-inch 4K High Definition anti-glare screen, a noise-reducing headset and Bluetooth connection. A real cinema in the sky!
Air France loves cinema
Ever since the first movie shown – An American in Paris – on board a Constellation flying from New York to Paris in 1951, cinema has been part of Air France’s DNA, and is now a key part of the travel experience. The innovation became widespread in 1966 with the installation of projectors hidden in the ceiling of some 20 Boeing 707s. Today, in all its long-haul cabins, Air France offers over 1,000 hours of in-flight entertainment on wide HD screens. More than 350 movies are available including a large selection of French titles as well as an offer of Hollywood blockbusters and independent productions. All year round, Air France offers passengers the chance to discover world cinema on board its flights.
This summer, Air France operates direct flights to 14 U.S. destinations on departure from Paris – Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York JFK, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington D.C. Starting on 12 December 2022, the company will operate a new daily non-stop flight between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and New York-Newark Liberty airport.
