Air France Plans to Gradually Resume Passenger Flight Operations
Following the gradual relaxation of COVID-19 lockdowns across the world, Air France has announced plans to gradually resume passenger flight operations.
Between now and the end of June, Air France plans to resume flights, with a gradual increase in the number of frequencies and destinations especially to/from metropolitan France, the French Overseas Departments, and Europe.
The airline also plans to resume flights to several destinations in North America, South America, Asia, Middle East, Africa, and the Caribbean.
This flight schedule will be equivalent to 15% of the capacities usually deployed at this time of year and will be operated by 75 out of the 224 aircraft in the Air France fleet.
To assist its customers as traffic picks up again, Air France regularly adapts its flight schedule and updates it daily across all distribution channels.
Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 crisis, Air France has been operating between 3 and 5% of its usual schedule. In this capacity, it currently serves 43 destinations.
