October 26, 2023
  • 167 destinations in 79 countries ;
  • Two new destinations outbound from Paris-Charles de Gaulle: Raleigh-Durham (North Carolina, USA) and Abu Dhabi (UAE) ;
  • Service to Ottawa (Canada), Dar-es-Salaam (Tanzania) and Krakow (Poland) extended to winter season ;
  • Increased capacities to Asia to continue, grow by 60% versus winter 2022-2023.



After a summer season marked by strong demand, especially for long-haul travel, Air France continues to move forward with the reopening and expansion of its global network. During the 2023-2024 winter season (November 2023 – March 2024), the airline will fly to 167 destinations – 84 long-haul and 83 medium-haul. It will be operating at near winter 2019 levels, notably at 98% of 2019’s capacity in terms of available seat kilometres on long-haul flights.


Long-haul: Raleigh-Durham and Abu Dhabi join network, capacities to Asia up 60% 

Winter 2023-2024 will see a 20% increase in capacities to North America compared to 2019. Over that period, Air France will operate up to 212 flights a week to 20 destinations in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Raleigh-Durham (North Carolina) will join the Air France network effective October 30, 2023, with 3 weekly flights on Boeing 787-9. Raleigh-Durham will become Air France’s 14th US destination this winter. Also, the airline will be extending its Ottawa service to the winter season. The Ottawa route was inaugurated in June and flights are aboard a Boeing 787-9. Service to Dallas, Vancouver, Boston and Montreal will be bolstered, through more flights or higher-capacity aircraft. Finally, in a nod to its 90 years, as of October 29, 2023, Air France will renumber its flights between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and New York-JFK. Flights AF015 and AF022 will assume numbers AF001 and AF002, the iconic flight numbers for the Concorde until 2003.

Farther south, Air France will be strengthening its services to Central and South America with the introduction of daily service to San José (Costa Rica) on Airbus A350-900. Services to Bogota (Colombia) will also be operated by Airbus A350-900, increasing capacity on that route. In the Caribbean, on December 1, 2023, Air France will inaugurate a new route between Pointe-à-Pitre (Guadeloupe) and Saint-Martin – one weekly flight aboard an Airbus A320. This will bring to 7 the number of destinations Air France’s Caribbean regional network serves: Belém (Brazil), Cayenne, Pointe-à-Pitre, Fort-de-France, Saint-Martin, Miami and Montreal.

Air France’s offering from/to Asia is also set to grow. Although still below 2019 levels, capacities there will be up 60% compared to winter 2022-2023, driven by China and Japan. The airline will maintain daily flights to Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong throughout the winter, and will add a second flight to Tokyo-Haneda. This winter, the airline will fly up to 16 times a week to Tokyo’s two airports. Finally, daily flights will resume this winter to Bangkok (Thailand), and the destination will enjoy up to 10 flights a week during the peak months of January and February 2024.

Effective October 29, 2023, Air France will begin flying to Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) as part of a cooperation with Etihad Airways. Flights will depart every day, with an Airbus A350-900. Service to Dubai will be 14 times a week aboard a Boeing 777. 

In Africa, Air France now flies daily to Nairobi (Kenya), and travel to Dar Es Salaam (Tanzania) inaugurated in June as a continuation of service to Zanzibar (Tanzania), is being extended to the winter season.

Due to safety concerns, flights from/to Niamey (Niger), Bamako (Mali) and Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) remain suspended until further notice.


Deployment of new cabins ongoing on Boeing 777-300 ERs and Airbus A350-900s

Air France is continuing its rollout of its latest long-haul cabins, gradually being installed on 12 Boeing 777 300 ERs, and now also earmarked for the Airbus A350-900s. 

Part of Air France’s move upmarket, this new product, available in Business, Premium Economy and Economy models, forms the cornerstone of the airline’s new travel experience. This winter, it will be available on certain flights to New York-JFK, New York-Newark, Boston, Rio de Janeiro, Bangkok, Dakar, Tokyo-Haneda, Hong Kong, Seoul-Incheon, Shanghai and Johannesburg.


Short- and medium-haul: 660+ flights daily, resumption of seasonal routes to Scandinavia

Leading the way for medium-haul travel this winter is the restart of seasonal routes between Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport and Tromsø (Norway, 2 flights a week as of October 28, 2023), Rovaniemi (Finland, 3 flights a week effective December 2, 2023, and up to 7 flights a week during the Christmas holidays), Kittilä (Finland, 1 flight a week starting December 23, 2023) and Innsbruck (Austria, 1 flight a week as of December 23, 2023).

Flights to Krakow (Poland) are being extended to the winter season, three times a week on Embraer 190.

At this stage, flights from/to Tel Aviv (Israel) remain suspended through October 31.


Air France-KLM Group’s low-cost affiliate, Transavia France, will fly to 84 cities in 26 countries this winter. Once again, it will be the top low-cost airline operating out of Paris’ airports.
