This new direct service is in addition to the daily Air France bus service linking Montreal Pierre Elliott Trudeau airport to Quebec City, which is accessible free of charge to all customers connecting from an Air France flight.
The new Paris-Quebec City flights are operated by a three-class Airbus A330-200 equipped with the airline's new travel cabins and a Wi-Fi connection available throughout the flight.
In the Business cabin, passengers will enjoy seats that transform into a fully flat, 2 metre-long bed.

All seats are equipped with Air France's latest-generation entertainment system, offering more than 1,000 hours of films, series and other programmes on large HD touch screens.
Individual USB sockets are also available to allow passengers to recharge their electronic devices.
Quebec City: A fortified Jewel
Quebec City is the capital of the Canadian province of Quebec. Located on the banks of the St. Lawrence River, Quebec City is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1985. Its historic centre - Old Quebec - is the only fortified city in North America.
Once the gateway to New France, Quebec City is now a buoyant city where festivals and major cultural events take place throughout the year. The exceptional natural parks in its region and in the east of the province are opportunities to discover the beauty of Quebec's great outdoors.
