Paris is considered one of the most romantic cities in the world, and it is popular with couples and honeymooners, as well as history lovers and culture seekers.
Air France regularly flies American travelers to the City of Lights, and now they have added another American city to their flight plan.
Here’s what you need to know about the new nonstop flight route that will connect Paris with this U.S. city:
New Flight Route
Air France is launching a new nonstop route between Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport and Phoenix Sky Habor International Airport (PHX).
This new service will start on May 23, and during the summer months, passengers from Phoenix will be able to take advantage of 3 weekly round trips between the two cities.
This new route is available to book now and this is the first time there has ever been a nonstop service between these two cities.
Travel between Paris and Phoenix is already in high demand. According to the latest figures, the number of passengers traveling on itineraries between the two cities has grown to be 40% higher now than the levels seen during the previous high in 2019.
The plane flying this route will be the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, which will offer 30 lie-flat business class seats, 21 premium economy seats, and 228 economy seats.
Heading from Phoenix to Paris the flight will leave at 2.10pm and arrive in Paris at 9.15am the next day.
Why Visit Paris?
Arts, culture, cuisine, and, of course, romance.
Paris is better known as the City of Lights, and it is a city that offers it all.
Travelers choose to visit Paris for its famous landmarks, world-class food, incredible arts scene, and cool cafe culture.
Climb to the top of the Eiffel Tower (or take the lift if you don’t pack your walking shoes), then visit the Louvre to see the Mona Lisa.
Enjoy spectacular views of the city from the Arc de Triomphe and see the beautiful dome of the Sacre Couer Basilica.
One of the biggest landmarks in Paris is the Notre Dame Cathedral which suffered devastating damage due to a fire but is finally scheduled to reopen on December 8 2024.
If you’re short on time, you can take a cruise down the River Seine and see many of these attractions in just one afternoon, although you will need much longer if you want to see inside them all and explore them in depth.
This summer will be a busy but exciting one to be in Paris.
From July 26 to August 11, Paris will be hosting the 2024 Summer Olympic Games, and the city will be filled to capacity with athletes and sports fans.
This will be the biggest sporting event ever organized in France and although this may put many travelers off visiting the city, especially if you’d rather see the sites without the crowds, if you’re looking for a lively and exciting time to be in France then it’s the perfect time.
Flying With Air France
This is far from the first Air France flight to connect Paris to the United States. In fact, the airline already flies to 16 other U.S. cities with this new Phoenix route, bringing the total to 17.
On May 13, the airline will resume its seasonal summertime flights between Paris and Minneapolis.
The airline has also announced that the route from Paris to Raleigh-Durham in North Carolina that was launched this winter will be extended until the end of summer 2024.
As well as flying to 17 destinations within the United States, Air France also flies to five destinations in Canada and two in Mexico, meaning that North American passengers are well catered to by the airline.
