Air France supports Personn'Ailes at the Pride March
As in previous years, Air France is supporting the LGBT and gay-friendly association of Air France employees, Personn'Ailes, at the LGBT Pride March in Paris on Saturday, June 29.
Air France is providing financial support for the event and will display the colours of the rainbow as an avatar on its Facebook and Twitter accounts. A Personn'Ailes float carrying Air France, KLM, Virgin Atlantic, Transavia and Delta staff will lead the procession between Montparnasse and Place de la République. Goodies will be handed out to spectators.
Flying the rainbow flag between Paris and San Francisco
To celebrate Gay Pride in San Francisco and the LGBT Pride March in Paris, Air France is operating two special LGBT-friendly flights – flight AF084 on June 28, 2019 between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and San Francisco and flight AF083 on June 30, 2019 between San Francisco and Paris-Charles de Gaulle.
On board, a charity sale of items is taking place in aid of the association Le Refuge, whose role is to support and provide accommodation for the young gay, lesbian and transgender population living in precarious conditions. This operation is carried out in partnership with the Air France Foundation. A film presenting Le Refuge and LGBT-themed films are also being shown on the entertainment screens on board.

A company committed to promoting inclusion and diversity
Air France, aware of its social and societal responsibility, affirms its commitment to ensuring that only skills matter in the workplace: fighting all forms of discrimination is essential to progress and to promote equality, respect and tolerance. This is why Air France is committed to preventing discrimination based on gender or sexual orientation and to promoting an inclusive working environment in which all employees can be themselves.
On May 17, for the International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia, Air France signed the association l'Autre Cercle's LGBT+ commitment charter, which fights against discrimination linked to sexual orientation and gender identity and provides a formal framework by including the LGBT+ theme in a policy to promote diversity.
