Air France and SNCF Extend "Train + Air" Product
To offer passengers more travel options, Air France and the SNCF have extended their "Train + Air" product to the Bordeaux - Paris-Orly route.
As from 3 December, Train + Air will also be offered by Air France between Bordeaux Saint-Jean station and Paris-Orly airport, starting on 15 December, with connections available to the entire international Air France network on departure from Paris-Orly airport, particularly to the French overseas territories (Cayenne, Pointe-à-Pitre, Fort-de-France and Saint-Denis de La Réunion).
Customers will travel by train from Bordeaux to Massy TGV, before transferring to Paris-Orly by a taxi service. There will be 5 daily departures from Bordeaux Saint-Jean and 4 daily departures from Massy TGV, with adapted schedules for quick connections. Customers travelling from Bordeaux will enjoy all the advantages of the Train + Air product:
a single ticket for the entire trip, with the guarantee of a transfer to the next flight or train at no extra cost, in the event of a missed connection;
a First Class seat onboard the TGV for customers in the Business or La Première cabins on Air France;
Miles and Flying Blue XP earned on the entire trip, including the rail leg.
Reservations for this new route marketed by Air France are already available at airfrance.fr, by calling 3654 or from travel agents.
Air France and the SNCF are currently working on extending the Train + Air product to other routes and improving the customer experience throughout their trip.
For 25 years, Air France and the SNCF have been offering their customers a service allowing them to combine train and air travel in a single booking.
Called "Train + Air”, it currently links 14 stations to the Air France hubs at Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Paris-Orly (Angers Saint-Laud, Avignon TGV, Champagne-Ardenne TGV, Le Mans, Lille Europe, Lorraine TGV, Lyon Part-Dieu, Nantes, Nîmes, Poitiers, Rennes, Saint-Pierre-des-Corps, Strasbourg and Valence TGV).
